How many people shared in “The Secret Sharer”?
Merlin ’s “The Secret Sharer” was watched by 5.4 million viewers last night, very slightly up from its figure of 5.3 million last week. This made Merlin the fourth most-watched show of the night.
The X-Factor was once again the night’s viewing figures champ with an average of 10.9 million viewers, with Strictly Come Dancing second (10.26 million), both pretty amazing figures for these days on British TV (and The X-Factor had technical problems to deal with last night – and don’t just mean the fact that all the acts are rubbish this year). The football also did well with England’s one-nil win over Spain being watched by 6.4 million viewers (with a peak of 8.8 million).
