From the Mirror:
TV LAND: CRACKING CONTEST
Nicola Methven And Polly Hudson
THERE’S drama aplenty in the battle for viewers this autumn. ITV chiefs are so desperate to beat their BBC rivals they’ve brought forward the new Cracker film by more than a month so it goes head-to-head with the Beeb’s adaptation of Bronte’s Jane Eyre.
“Cracker was initially supposed to be screened in November,” whispers our source. “But it’s now going out on October 1 – against the second part of Jane Eyre.
“It looks a like deliberate act of sabotage by ITV, which will only serve to damage both shows in the ratings.” Crikey.
Damage the ratings? Oh, I really don’t think so. Jane will be fine.
