Twilight puts in average performance for Channel 4

The network premier of Twilight on Channel 4 last night attracted a total of 2.53million viewers

The successful film franchise was a late announcement from Channel 4, in what was a deliberate bid to scupper the launch of Celebrity Big Brother on 5. Channel 5 decided to change the launch night for tonight, with billboard promotions still having yesterday’s date.

The film averaged 2.53million viewers between 8.00pm – 10.20pm. This was followed by 8 Out Of 10 Cats Uncut and The Inbetweeners repeat which both averaged around 1million viewers.
