Big Brother struggled in the ratings on Saturday, but the audience picked up a little yesterday.
Shievonne’s eviction on Friday secured over 1.5 million (excluding +1), but ratings dipped over the weekend.
Highlights of day 39 averaged 869,000 viewers (4.2%) on Channel 5 in the 9PM hour.
The +1 audience is currently unavailable, but the episode is the second lowest rated of the series so far, ahead of the 774k that chose not to watch England’s Euro 2012 match with Italy last month.
In the same timeslot (excluding +1 channels), Casualty appealed to 4.41m on BBC1, The Nation’s Favourite Number 1 Single averaged 2.57m on ITV1, and The Million Pound Drop Live was seen by 1.39m on Channel 4.
Last night, 1.15m (4.8%) caught up with highlights of day 40 (1.25m including +1).
The combined audience was down on the previous Sunday’s 1.50m, and was the second lowest Sunday show of the series, again ahead of England vs Italy.
Elsewhere at 9PM (excl. +1), Wallander averaged 5.19m on BBC1, both Superstar and The Nation’s Favourite Number 1 Single received over 3m on ITV1, and World’s Most Dangerous Roads and Thelma’s Gypsy Girls were each seen by 2.12m on BBC2 and Channel 4 respectively.
Big Brother continues tonight at 9PM on Channel 5.
