See below for UK only figures. Only up to pre-Xmas currently available. Only the top 15 rated programmes for each channel per week available, a number of sessions (many of the weekday afternoons as examples) were also on Sky Sports Main event but ratings not available, so figures may be incomplete for some days, especially the afternoons.

Key: SSD - Sky Sports Darts, SSME - Sky Sports Main Event, SSM - Sky Sports Mix.

Ratings include 7 day catch up, also now seem to incorporate on-demand viewing too.

I’d say that looks pretty healthy. And only from a UK perspective.

The last weekend looks decent enough. Afternoons were always going to be a bit pants.

Be interesting to see how post-Xmas and NY afternoon sessions on free to air TV compare :fishing

That many people watching a pub game final in a country of around 17 million people is outstanding though.
