Will Young's Bedlam fell below 200k on Monday night, according to the latest overnight audience data.

Sky Living's first venture into drama has so far failed to capture the audience's imagination, as the supernatural show grabbed 189k (1%) for its fourth episode - guest starring Gavin & Stacey actress Joanna Page - in the 10pm hour.

Topping the multichannel ratings, Glee pulled in 1.33m (5.5%) for E4, while entertainment on BBC Four - courtesy of The Story of Variety and Eric and Ernie: Behind The Scenes - held respective audiences of 594k (2.4%) and 636k (3.5%).

The Biggest Loser ended on a respectable 4.68m (18.9%) in the 9pm hour for ITV1 (+1: 214k), beating BBC One's Crimewatch which logged only 3.43m (13.8%).

Sitcom Mrs Brown's Boys, starring Brendan O'Carroll, premiered after the BBC News At Ten with a healthy, slot-winning 2.63m (18.2%), having previously been aired on Irish channel RTÉ to ratings success.

Over on BBC Two, University Challenge interested 2.91m (11.2%) at 8pm, Raymond Blanc's Kitchen Secrets followed with 2.01m (7.9%), and When Teenage Meets Old Age picked up 1.53m (6.2%).

BBC One's Panorama mustered 2.77m (10.9%) for 'Classroom Warriors', predictably thrashed by the second in a double bill of Coronation Street on ITV1.

Meanwhile, The Lakes fetched 3.63m (14%) at 8pm (+1: 113k), easily beaten by EastEnders on BBC one.

Channel 4's Dispatches gripped 1.18m (4.6%) for 'Secret NHS Diaries' in the 8pm hour (+1: 113k), then One Born Every Minute averaged 2.26m (9.1%) from 9pm (+1: 360k).

Elsewhere, The Gadget Show took 1.19m (4.6%) for Channel 5 at 8pm, after which 1.81m (7.3%) watched Royal Navy Caribbean Patrol.

Overall, ITV1 owned primetime with 24.3% (+1: 0.5%), beating BBC One which had 19.6%. BBC Two was next with 6.8%, followed closely by Channel 4 with 5.7% (+1: 0.9%), and Channel 5 with 4.7%.
