(I often wonder: Who are these people who only watch BBC1 and are seemingly ignorant of the existance of the 'Channel up/down' buttons on their television/remotes? Have they been sat there just watching one channel their entire lives?)
It's a bizarre attitude, isn't it? Just the basic concept that stuff gets 'promoted' to BBC 1. Ratings do seem to back up more people watching BBC 1 than BBC 2; but you're right, who are they? And what is their problem with *gasp* other channels?
Are they ultra-conservatives who think BBC 2 is one step closer to Communism?
Maybe they think the Queen only approves of BBC 1?
Is it some massive collection of geriatric viewers who either still don't know there's a BBC 2, or perhaps think it's some upstart whippersnapper?
Why does this happen? Are people really so straight-laced they think BBC 2 is 'weird' and 'out there'? I'd love to know what it is.
