Adele Continues To Dominate The UK Music Scene!

Filed under: AnglophiliaMusic MinuteAdele

It's official! Our beloved Goddess Adele is the queen of the UK music scene!

Not only has the British songstress' second album, 21, been at the top of the album charts for six weeks (while her first album, 19, is at number four), but her second single, Someone Like You, has now been number one on the singles charts for three weeks (first single Rolling in the Deep is at five) - all of which makes her the FIRST LIVING ARTIST since The Beatles to have two top five hits on both the Official Singles Chart and the Official Album Chart simultaneously!

Official Charts Company managing director Martin Talbot says:

"We are witnessing a real superstar in the making. A million sales in six weeks for one album would be impressive enough, but to have another album and two singles continuing to sell so strongly plus heading both the Official Singles and Albums Charts simultaneously is truly exceptional."

Exceptional, indeed!

We couldn't be happier for her!

Get ready for the Adele nation to continue stateside! Gurlfriend is UNSTOPPABLE!

Congratulations again!

Take That Breaks More Records!

It's official!

Take That is BACK! And more popular than ever!

Their new album, which marks the return of Robbie Williams to the group, has the biggest-selling opening week sales for any album in 13 years, selling almost 520,000 copies, according to the Official Charts Company!

Martin Talbot, the managing director of the Official Charts Company, explains:

'Since their reunion as a four-piece four years ago, Take That have firmly established themselves as the UK's favourite band. Following the return of Robbie Williams to their ranks, that record has been further cemented - and they are now well on course to rule Christmas 2010, just as they dominated Christmas 2006 and 2008.'

Amazing! An unbelievable accomplishment, boys!

We're thrilled to have you back!

Martha Stewart Not Put Off By Shiteous Ratings!

wenn5539697__opt1.jpg

A little old nuisance like disastrous ratings isn't going to keep Martha Stewart down!

Although her premiere on the Hallmark Channel - which marks her new partnership with the network - pulled in an audience of less than 199,000 viewers in its initial airing, all of the head honchos, including Martha herself, claim that they're not concerned - at least yet!

RBC Capital's managing director, David Bank, says:

“There is risk involved for both, but when you really think about what this is all about, it’s still a win for both companies — at least for now. Martha, whatever her ratings are, suddenly makes Hallmark more relevant. It’s no longer the ‘Little House’ rerun channel. It’s the Martha channel, and that’s a lot more valuable.”

Execs also claim that they knew it would be difficult garnering viewership toward the beginning of the deal, and Crown Media chief William Abbott explained "It’s awfully difficult to get noticed, even when you are Martha Stewart. We feel great about the show. But having said that, it’s TV — we’ve got to find an audience."

The show will now not only at 10am daily, but will repeat two more times, and be available for viewing on Stewart's website.

She explains:

“It’s very important that the program is replayed on the Internet. We’re dealing with a few challenges here — like some people don’t have cable. Compelling programming always wins out, and we are working very hard — in the magazines, on Twitter, on blogs, in advertising — to tell everybody where they can find us. I like to build. Building is interesting. Building is pioneering.”

Let's hope that all is this building doesn't collapse in on itself!

That would be one expensive fuck-up!

What do U think?? Will Martha survive these shiteous ratings??
