Last night saw the debut of Dave’s ‘School of Hard Sums’, a slightly strange but enjoyable maths show from Dara O Briain and Marcus du Sautoy. Was the show a success? Today Dara tweeted:
So, would viewers of Dave actually want to watch a show about maths? Turns out… yes. We got double the normal audience. Yay for maths!

Of course, the show received a good deal of advertising – but it seems like good news nonetheless.
