RTE's Reeling in the Years was watched last night by over half a million people, with nearly half of those aged 15 to 34 years old.

With an average of 515,000 viewers tuning in, Reeling in the Years overtook chat shows Tommy Tiernan and the Late Late Show.

RTE opened its stash of archives and took a trip down memory lane on the stories and songs of the previous decade.

Sunday's show focused on 2010, and included memorable headlines, including the big freeze of 2010, which saw temperatures dropping to -16 degrees, an Islandic volcano erupted and caused travel chaos, and the black cloud of the IMF bailout.

Popular 2010 soundtracks included Rihanna, the Rubberbandits, and Adele.

The nostalgic hit show overtook The Tommy Tiernan Show on Saturday which was watched by an average audience of 504,000 viewers.

Ryan Tubridy’s Late Late Show had an average of 461,0000 viewers with guests Dervla Kirwan, Padraig Harrington, and a host of Irish country musicians.

Meanwhile, murder mystery drama Smother culminated in an exciting finale last night, and was watched by 400,000 viewers.

The first episode of the new Burren: Heart of Stone series narrated by Brendan Gleeson was watched by 309,000 people.

Brendan Courtney returned to Keys to my Life with guest Mary Coughlan and was watched by 232,000 viewers, and new Saturday evening family quiz show Home Advantage, presented by Jennifer Zamparelli, trailed behind with an average of 225,00 viewers.

It was a winning weekend for sport fans too, as RTÉ2 viewers celebrated Ireland’s victory over Wales in the Women’s 6 Nations, while Paul O’Donovan and Fintan McCarthy won gold for Ireland at the European Rowing Championship.

Over half a million people tuned in to Sunday’s RTE Nine O’Clock News to watch the easing of some Covid-19 restrictions.
