Big Brother fell below the 1 million mark when excluding +1, but was still Channel 5′s most popular offering on Monday night.
Highlights of day 48 in the house were seen by 995,000 viewers (4.2%) at 9PM, with timeshift bringing the total audience to 1.14 million.
This is the joint-lowest rating for a weekday highlights show, equalling the 1.14m who tuned in on Wednesday night during the penultimate week of Big Brother 2011.
Despite the low figure, the reality show still anchored Channel 5′s evening, with Megastructures averaging 669,000 viewers at 8PM and The Walking Dead appealing to 695,000 from 10PM.
Big Brother’s opposition in the 9PM hour included Eastenders (featuring live scenes with the Olympic torch) and an Absolutely Fabulous Olympic Special, which averaged 7.3m and 5.6m for BBC1 respectively. Superstar entertained 2.6m on ITV1, and Undercover Boss received 1.3m on Channel 4.
