Sleep no more came the other day, so I thought that we should look at the recent ratings of the series and compare them as well as have a detailed look at them.
1. overnight figures
Here are the ratings:
The ratings have lowered overnight from previous years. If we look and compare two of the ratings, then we shall. Let's compare episode 2 of the seasons. These are into the dalek and the witch's familiar
Into the Dalek 5.2m
The Witch’s Familiar 3.7m
Iplayer has not yet been counted I don't think, but that is a popular source for viewings. Also, the rugby world cup aired, and with a new doctor, there are several reasons. But, still it is quite bad judging by some shows have even better ratings that are terrible.
2. final ratings
The final ratings count people who watched on record later or on other services. Here are this years
The magicians apprentice-6.54 (final)
The Witch’s Familiar-5.71m (final)
Under the Lake- 5.63m (final)
Before the Flood- 6.05m (final)
The Girl Who Died-6.56m (final)
The Woman Who Lived- 6.11m (final)
The Zygon Invasion-5.76m (final)
The Zygon Inversion- 6.03m (final)
So, let's look at this a little bit closer. The final viewing figures are alright, however the average last year was 7 to 8 million on the final figures. But there were some episodes that did get an episode rating of around 5 to 6 million as the final figure.
AI's are not very accurate things, but are measured of the appreciation of the audience that are not always who fans. Over 90 is considered exceptional, 85 or over is excellent, 60 or less is poor, and less than 55 is very poor. This week's score was 78, which is the worst AL they have had for a long time, at least as long as remembered. It is quite a shocking and bad al, but it is an episode that cannot really impress to many people. Overall, they have had an average of 83 or 82.
Next time in part 2 of the article I shall look in depth on the ratings of the remaining season 9 episodes and much more.
