Primeval's Ratings Rise Again

Ratings for ITV’s time travelling drama Primeval rose again on Saturday evening and saw a big boost thanks to ITV’s new time-shift channel. Primeval’s fourth season hasn’t rated brilliantly so far for ITV but since its big drop (to 3.2 million) for its second episode ratings have been rising week-on-week all be it slightly. Saturday evening’s fifth episode of the new season saw ratings rise once again as 3.9 million viewers tuned in compared to 3.8 million for last week.
However, ratings for Primeval are given a significant boost when ITV1’s new time-shift channel is taken into account. According to SFX ITV1 +1 added further 700, 000 viewers watched the episode. That gives a combined audience of roughly 4.6 million viewers – higher than the 4.4 million who watched the season premier. So the combined rating makes Saturday’s episode the highest of the season so far – some good news for Primeval fans at least!
