“Pointless Celebrities” Debuts to 4.68 Million Viewers
BBC’s Pointless made a successful jump to primetime this past weekend. Endemol’s special series, Pointless Celebrities, debuted on Saturday evening to 4.68 million viewers and a 21.6% share. It beat its rival All Star Family Fortunes, which scored 4.05 million viewers and a 17.1% share. Pointless‘s daytime rival, ITV’s The Chase, made an equally successful leap to primetime with just about the same viewing figures, so this is a very nice success for the Alexander Armstrong hosted quizzer. Good news for a few other games as well. BBC’s Who Dares Wins saw 5.22 million viewers, ITV’s Take Me Out scored 4.99 million, and Channel 4′s The Bank Job got 1.09 million.
