American imports Caprica and The Vampire Diaries both lose ratings for Sky One and ITV2 respectively.
According to overnight ratings the CW teen vampire series saw 500,000 return to ITV2 last night for the latest episode in the series. The drama premiered on ITV2 last week with 847,000 viewers although the following episode – which aired immediately after – saw a drop to 583,000 viewers.
However, while it was a drop in ratings it was still streets ahead of Caprica which on Sky One failed once again to make much of an impact on the ratings chart. The Battlestar Galactica prequel was seen by 145,000 viewers – down on last week’s two-hour premier.
On BBC One the post-apocalyptic drama series Survivors, which stars Julia Graham, was seen by 3.8 million viewers which was enough to win the time-slot at 9pm.
Medical drama Holby City at 8pm was seen by an impressive 6.4 million viewers. Shameless on Channel Four at 10pm had 2.4 million viewers for its third episode of the 7th season.
Soap wise at 7pm Emmerdale had 7.3 million viewers while magazine series The One Show had a reasonable 5.5 million viewers. The most watched programme of the day was, unsurprisingly, EastEnders which continues to hurtle towards its 25th anniversary. The BBC One soap pulled in 9.8 million viewers at 7.30 while the BBC Three repeat at 10pm had 870,000 viewers giving a combined audience of over 10 million viewers.
