How good or bad the TV shows offered up by our national broadcaster certainly divides opinion, but one thing for sure is, a lot of us are watching them, whether we like it or not.

So what show were we most glued to on RTE this year? Well you might be surprised to find out that it was Charlie, with its opening episode getting an audience of 851,700 viewers.

Proving we are all still as fascinated as ever with the divisive political figure that was Charlie Haughey, or else we all love Aidan Gillen's dodgy accents and Nidge in a wig more than we'd care to admit.

Sport then also took up a lot of space on the list, particularly the rugby, with the second most watched show being the Ireland v England 6 Nations match on RTÉ2, which had 760,300 viewers, while Ireland v Scotland came in fourth place with 702,900 viewers.

Ireland v France took fifth position with 693,000 viewers, and finally England v France took seventh place with 660,500 people watching.

In at number 3 then was the Nine O'Clock news on January 18th with an audience of 729,000, when Minister Leo Varadker spoke openly about coming out for the first time.

In at sixth place is the The Voice of Ireland on February 22nd, with 688,100 of us tuning in to see the first night of the battles.

The great Dermo Bannon comes in at number 8 on the list with February 8th's Room to Imrprove show raking in an impressive 653,400 viewers.

In at ninth was this year's Rose of Tralee, which just aired last week, with 652,300 watching the Meath Rose Eysha Brennan take home the crown.

And finally, The Late Late Show Eurosong on February 27 brought in 645,400 viewers, and it didn't even have a Linda Martin v Aslan bust off to show for it!

In case you are wondering why there's no Love/Hate, the final season aired before Christmas (yep, we didn't think it was that long either).

There's also another four months left in 2015 with some pretty promising new shows on the way from RTE as well as of course the almighty Late Late Toy Show, so it will be interesting to see how this list changes come Christmas.
