Primeval Struggles In The Ratings

Saturday’s debut is solid, but things got worse on Sunday…

However, the Sunday ratings were more worrying. 1.2 million viewers deserted the show, leaving it with just 3.3 million watching.

Let’s hope things pick up again next week – the show might be not firing on all cylinders at the moment, but the new set-up has potential, we reckon the arc plot has a few surprises in store to liven things up, and the trailer for episode three looked intriguing. And who knows? Maybe, as with Doctor Who , the show will benefit from a larger than normal percentage of people recording it to watch it later, or watching it in ITV’s catch-up service. We’ll keep you posted.
