fwiw I'm sure it will be on Ch4/BT Sport/Lakeside again this year. Still a few years left in the old Lakeside dog yet.

Because even the board have admitted there hasnt been any progress past their original statement of "it will be sorted before March"?

The answer, in case anyone missed it, is one. Like every other show.

Well actually it wouldn't be 1. It would be 1 for each session.

You can’t knock the last few women’s semi finals and finals they have been a plus for the BDO and I’m not a fan of the women’s darts in general.

The worst case scenario for the BDO is if BT Sport picks it up but either dumps some of the early sessions behind their red button service, or pulls a stunt like they do with some of the US sports where the game is joined in progress.

The highest rated WDT session on Freesports was 9k for the Wednesday night.

Test Match Bowls (on a Wednesday morning at 8am on the 6th June, one week later) got 12k.

Beyond pathetic. 100% proof that BDO darts is dead and buried as a viable commercial TV product. Not be long now until Des Jacklin knocks the last few nails into the coffin lid of the BDO before it goes into the incinerator. Let's just hope that what rises from the ashes is not run by the cretins who masquerade as England Darts.

Yes, but you know what those bowls fans are like. Tuning into the bowls on multiple TVs in the house and changing channels in Currys to massage the viewing figures.

Given it was on at 8am I believe they also got the milkmen to give reminders to people it was on as they went around delivering that day.
