Missing five million

It looks like many fewer of us are consuming broadcast telly on Christmas night. The top show this year, according to the overnight ratings, was the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas special, with 7.17 viewers, a 32.7% share of the available audience. That makes the total watching telly across that time slot almost 22m.

Five years ago, the top show was Eastenders, with 9.9m in the overnights, and a share of 33.4% - making the telly-watching total 27m.

Presumably the missing 5m are playing board games, down the pub, or, heaven forfend, watching videos via Amazon and Netflix.
