Lily Allen and Friends... well, friend, perhaps

We actually feel a little bad now. We really meant to mention that last week's Lily Allen and Friends got its largest audience of the run - a record busting third of a million - but didn't get round to it; now, we're mentioning last night's ratings and it'll look like we're only counting the flatline figures and ignoring the ones that are slightly less bad.

But we're not. It just happens that last night's audience averaged 173,000 - although by the end, the figures had dipped to 148,000. The good news for Lily, though, is that this figure is so small, it can't really be counted accurately by the ratings systems.

The BBC has been suggesting that the series was doing well on the iPlayer - perhaps that's where all the viewers are.
