Topping The Charts

Consolidated viewing figures for Twentica.

7 October, 2016

We reported last week on the initial "overnight" viewing figures for Twentica, the series premiere of Red Dwarf XI. They were impressive in their own right, but what's even more impressive are the final - known as "consolidated" - figures for the broadcast, which are collated from data gathered in the entire week following transmission.

Topping The Charts

The final figure for the episode has come in at 1.38 million viewers having tuned in on Dave on 22nd September, or who recorded the episode to watch at a later point. This actually bumps Red Dwarf into top spot (ahead of ITV2's Celebrity Juice) as the most watched "non-terrestrial" programme of the entire week! What's more, if the show had attracted those figures on Channel 5 (one of the "big five" channels), it would even have been that channel's second highest rating show of the week.

It's worth noting, too, that those figures don't include anyone who watched the ep On Demand, either before or after its transmission. All in all, it's estimated that close to two million people will have seen the first ep in one way or another - an especially impressive result given the high-profile premieres that other, terrestrial channels were launching the same night.

All in all, we'd have to say the reaction and viewing figures for Red Dwarf XI would clearly have made the commissioning of Series XII a certainty - so it's a good job that we've already made it, then, isn't it...?

Red Dwarf XI continues, Thursday nights on Dave and online on UKTV Play!
