Olly Murs's new fly-on-the-wall documentary Life on Murs picked up just over 360,000 last night (Thursday), early viewing figures show.

The ITV2 show pulled in 365k (1.6%) at 9pm and 107k on +1, overall a tiny improvement on its opening audience last week.

However, the programme's performance has so far been poor when compared to the 1 million viewers watching Peter Andre's biopic on Wednesday nights.

Predictably, Celebrity Juice topped the multichannels with a colossal 1.6m (8.7%) at 10pm, adding 220k on ITV2 +1.

Benefiting from Juice's lead-in, the Matt Edmondson-narrated Totally Bonkers Guinness World Records slipped into the top ten multichannel shows for the day, logging 536k (4.1%) at 10.45pm.

The Big Bang Theory also maintained its strong form for E4 with 1.06m (4.7%) at 8pm (+1: 288k), although its later edition fell to 637k (2.7%) at 9pm (+1: 276k/1.2%).

Following its big launch last week, fellow US sitcom 2 Broke Girls dropped off to 608k (2.6%) and 216k on E4 +1.

Russell Howard's Good News, traditionally a ratings winner, continued with 603k (2.6%) - but the show will most likely double that audience in repeats over the course of the week.
