    To be fair to Charlie, the BBC article starts out with the following:

    Coverage: Watch live on BBC TV, BBC iPlayer and online; Live commentary on Radio 5 Live and Sports Extra; Live texts and highlights on BBC Sport website and app.

    But, perhaps that's just a general blurb for their sporting coverage.

    That's the RWC. This is a warm-up game.

    I’ll unashamedly say I love the new incarnation of All Creatures Great and Small . Last week was particularly poignant 

    I've missed this series, so I'll have to catch up. However, from previous shows, I like it. James is a bit of a wet blanket most of the time, but both Farnons are well-portrayed, especially Siegfried. It's a different take from Robert Hardy's famous version, but just as irrepressible and impossible to reason with.

    As I said, I understand that people may switch off if the game is poor / a blowout.

    What I find strange is that it appears people only switch on if it is a good game (that was the inference in the article that the Cowboys Wests game got a high number because it was a classic).

    Are people really not watching until they see it is a good game.  And how do they know it is a good game if they are not watching?

    Because fewer people switch off/over as the game goes on. The announced viewing figure for yesterday is not the peak (which would have been early on), but the average.

    It said the Cowboys Wests one was the highest rated as it was a 'classic'.  But how do you know it was a classic till the game has actually taken place?

    The viewing figures are measured in multiple short time periods. If people begin to switch off as the match proceeds, this decline in numbers is logged as part of the eventual announced figure.
