The figures have been revealed and there are no real surprises this year in what our top picks for 2016 were.
First up was The Late Late Toy Show which was the most-watched television programme here last year. Over 1.5 million people tuned in to watch Ryan Tubridy ask children their opinions on the year’s Christmas toys at the start of December.
With the year that was in it sporting wise its of no surprise to hear the toy show was the only non-sporting event in the top ten, with Ireland’s Euro 2016 games against France, Italy and Sweden the next most-watched programmes and the drawn All-Ireland football final between Dublin and Mayo rounding out the top five.
The replayed football final and All-Ireland hurling final between Kilkenny and Tipperary and three other Euro 2016 games – Ireland v Belgium, Wales v Portugal and the final between France and Portugal – were in the top ten. Three Ireland rugby games – against New Zealand, France and England – made the top 20, as did three episodes of Mrs Brown’s Boys.
