RTÉ kept the nation entertained and informed during Snowmageddon.

While the Beast from the East wreaked havoc up and down the country, viewers were tuning in to RTÉ to be informed and entertained.

Nine out of the top ten most-watched programmes on all channels available in Ireland from Wednesday February 28 to Sunday March 4 were RTÉ programmes, with 3.1 million people tuning in over the time period.

The Six One bulletin on Thursday, March 1 was the biggest news programme of the year, clocking in at 808,000 viewers. The Nine O'Clock bulletin on the same day had 707,000 viewers tuning in.

Dermot Bannon's much-loved Room to Improve pulled in 620,000 viewers on Sunday, with Dancing with the Stars following closely behind with 580,000.

Friday night's Late Late Show, which featured a skeletal audience and last minute guests, had 545,000 viewers.

Prime Time, Operation Transformation, Friday's One O'Clock news bulletin and Sunday's Fair City also featured in the ten most watched shows in the country during the snowy weather.
