Things are looking up for Line Of Duty. The World Productions produced drama was able to maintain its audience from week two to week three, overnight figures have revealed.
The third episode of the show’s six episode second season, which aired last night in the 9pm time-slot, managed an average audience of 2.2 million viewers and a 10% share. That is more or less even with last week’s 2.2 million viewers/9% share, which was itself up 22% from the season two premiere (1.8 million viewers/7% share). Season-to-date the second season of Line of Duty has been averaging an overnight audience of 2.1 million viewers.
