Countless TV shows and entertaining programmes are on-air during the winter holidays. Christmas Day is obviously the main prime time in December as well as New Year’s Day. What will be the most popular Christmas show 2020 – the Queen’s Speech or BBC series?
Being the most-watched programme on Christmas Day means having millions of viewers and high incomes. Every year, the best movies, series, and shows aim to be on air in prime time to attract the biggest audience. Which programme is predicted to be the most popular in 2020? Take a look at betting predictions at online sportsbooks in the UK.
Will the Queen’s speech top the rates this year?
One of the most awaited programmes to watch on Christmas Day is the Queen’s speech. Her Majesty Elizabeth II annually summarizes everything that had happened during the outgoing year. This time, the Queen’s speech will be broadcast on December 25 at 3 pm GMT
As 2020 was quite a difficult year for everyone including Britons, the Queen is expected to mention the pandemic and coronavirus in her traditional speech. Also, bookmakers believe Elizabeth II will speak about family and mention the Commonwealth. With 1.25 odds at online gambling sites in the UK, the Queen’s speech will become the most-watched TV event in 2020.
Interestingly, Elizabeth II didn’t top the rates last year. The “Gavin and Stacey” series has surpassed the Queen’s speech broadcast as the most popular Christmas show 2020. The BBC One comedy series reached 11.6 million viewers, while the Queen’s Christmas broadcast received only 6.4 million views. This time, another TV series can beat the Royals, according to the latest predictions.
TV series can become the most popular Christmas show 2020
“Call the Midwife” is a popular British TV series that can become the most-watched programme on Christmas Day. The drama series is a massive hit in Britain with plenty of positive reviews and accolades, including TV Choice Awards and National Television Awards. 3.75 odds at Bet365 Sportsbook show that “Call the Midwife” is close to surpassing the Queen’s speech by the number of viewers. On the other hand, will Britons watch a quite depressive drama show on Christmas Day?
Another TV series that can become the most popular Christmas show 2020 is “Mrs Brown’s Boys”. A British sitcom created by Brandon O’Carroll and starring him as well is a perfect pick for Christmas. It is somewhat similar to the last year’s top programme “Gavin and Stacey” due to its genre and fitting the holiday mood. The comedy show has 17.00 odds to attract the most viewers on December 25.
