Doesn’t it get just slightly annoying when you tune into a channel and half of its schedule is repeats? Channel 4 daytime consists of endless Come Dine with Me repeats, E4 seems to be enjoying a lasting love affair with Friends and Sky1 basically airs the same shows EVERY DAY. So who are the repeat (ahem) offenders? According to our weekly listings, Sky1 shows a whopping 175 repeats out of its 191 programmes per week, which means 91% of its schedule is repeats. Unsurprisingly, BBC Three isn’t far behind, with 88% repeats. The broadcasters we should applaud for encouraging variation in their programming are BBC1 and ITV1. Helped by the fact that it broadcasts a fair few original dramas, as well as two weekly soaps, ITV1 comes out on top with just 18% repeats.
