After suffering a significant ratings decline from week 1 – week 2, BBC One’s Hunted seems to have stemmed any further losses. The spy drama pulled in 3.4 million viewers and a 16% share, winning the 9pm slot by some 1.1 million viewers. Those numbers are steady with last week, when the show’s second episode also pulled in 3.4 million viewers.
While consolidated (live+7) figures for episodes 2 & 3 won’t be available for some time, the series is expected to make significant gains once time shifted viewing is factored in (the consolidated figures for the series premiere on October 4th rose Hunted‘s audience by 1.2 million viewers/27%). Elsewhere on Thursday night, BBC Two’s The Choir pulled in 2.8 million viewers and a 13% share; ITV1’s Homefront continued its ratings decline, pulling in 2.3 million viewers and an 11 share; and over on Channel 4, reality series Embarassing Bodies drew 1.6 million viewers and a 7% share.
