Back To Earth: A Ratings Success News Posted by Ian Symes on 14th April 2009, 10:28 Following on from the previous news that BTE Part 1 hit a whopping 2.06 million on the overnights, and that Part 2 got 937,000, the results are finally in for Part 3. And we’re going to… …live. 1.02 million, a 4.6% audience share, and more viewers than Sky 1’s latest big-budget, big-name drama. Get in. Obviously, this isn’t quite as good as Friday’s phenomenal effort, but it’s still huge for a digital channel, and we couldn’t be expected to enter the record books for three nights in a row. But for a little bit more context – the lowest rated episode of BTE got more viewers than the highest rated episode of Horne & Corden. I can’t wait to see the final figures for these shows, and indeed the Making Of, which I hope managed to retain a fair proportion of those million viewers. Doug said that the future of Red Dwarf depends on viewing figures and DVD sales. Put a big tick against item one. ADDITIONAL: It’s even more impressive than we first thought – and it’s making the news. See comments for links.
