BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Music | Live 8 attracts 9.6m UK viewers

The Live 8 concerts attracted a peak audience of 9.6 million viewers on BBC One on Saturday evening.
The channel's live coverage of the global concerts won an average audience of 6.6 million..

So despite fielding the "best" talent from popular music in a hugely hyped extravaganza, they failed to be as popular as "I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here".

Could some one tell the newspaper editors they got the priorities of their readers wrong....

The concert was to raise AWARENESS, not money.

Well, in that case it failed.

I was already aware that the problems of Africa are due to corrupt bullies with one hand in the till and the other on a machete.

how many watched the women's tennis?
