We've decided to trial a prediction game for overnight TV ratings in a similar style to the one which appears for the charts forum. There are 10 programmes to predict - with ratings given to two decimal places. The correct ratings for the purpose of this game are those provided by Digital Spy (i.e. tape-checked but not including +1 figures). You'll receive 10 Points for a perfect prediction, and 9 Points if you are 100k out, 8 points if you are 200k etc. until you reach 1 Point for 1m out.

For example, last night's Death In Paradise rated 6.66m - this rounds to 6.7m. If you predicted any number which rounds to 6.7 (i.e. 6.66-6.74m), you would receive 10 points. If you predicted rounds to 6.8 or 6.6 you receive 9 points etc. until 7.6 and 5.8, which would receive 1 point. If you get an exact prediction to two decimal places, you receive a bonus 2 points in addition to the regular points. For example if you predicted 6.66m you would receive 12 points.

I hope that hasn't confused anyone! Much more straight forward, there are two bonus questions which could earn you 5 points for each correct question.

If you want to enter you still can but obviously you'll receive a 0 for EastEnders since that's been aired and revealed this morning, and you can't score the bonus questions for obvious reasons.
