I for one was very unimpressed.

It seems written for the pre-teen Harry Potter audience though, so I think I'm just not their target on this one.
It's written for a family audience, in the same vein as Doctor Who and Robin Hood.

Overnight ratings are in and apparently it pulled in an average of 6.6m, not bad going considering it was up against X-Factor.

The first episode had an average of 6.65m (30%) over 45 minutes from 7.30pm, while on ITV1, ratings juggernaut The X Factor brought in 9.26m (41.7%) over an hour. The audience for Merlin was steady throughout but grew towards the end with a peak of 6.82m (30.3%) at 8.10pm.
You sit around here and you spin your little webs and you think the whole world revolves around you and your money. Well, it doesn't, Mr. Potter. In the whole vast configuration of things, I'd say you were nothing but a scurvy little spider!
