Rugby League Show refers to Rugby AM, so despite being much criticised, it was actually the 2nd most watched show of the week. But this does show the very small numbers this channel is getting - 11,000 for the most watched show of the week isn't many. I'd assume they lost a few subscribers when they lost the Championship coverage, but it does make you wonder what numbers they were getting for last years World Cup.
