Describing 2.9 million viewers as disastrous (the aggregate viewership for Episode 3 of BTE) for Dave is idiotic. I mean, Red Dwarf BTE rated better than current well advertised/publicised BBC Two shows Rev and Life's Too Short and it did it on a cable channel with the middle episode against Britain's Got Talent. If Red Dwarf BTE was a disaster, I guess The Inbetweeners is too as that gained similar ratings in its last series on a similarly rated channel at a time when more people had access to Freeview. If you didn't like BTE, fine. Don't twist figures to fit your view though.
