Things are looking up for The Fall.
The fourth episode of the Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan fronted show, which originally aired on Thursday December 4th at 9pm, has posted a significant uptick in the ratings in time-shifted viewing, with a consolidated audience of some 3.3 million viewers.
That represents an big increase of 57% on the initial overnight audience of 2.1 million viewers, but fell short of smashing the season high set by the second season premiere and its consolidated audience of 3.5 million viewers. It is also up by 0.3 million viewers or 10% on the 3 million viewers who watched the previous week’s episode.
The fairly substantial ratings growth comes after the penultimate episode of the second season drew a solid overnight audience of 2.1 million viewers. Season-to-date, The Fall has been averaging an overnight audience of 2.2 million viewers and a consolidated audience of 3.2 million viewers.
Elsewhere at 9pm on the night of December 4th, ITV’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here added 1.5 million viewers or 19% to it initial overnight audience of 7.8 million viewers to deliver 9.3 million viewers; and Channel 4′s 24 Hours In A&E managed 2.2 million viewers, posting gains of 0.6 million viewers and 38% on its initial audience of 1.6 million viewers.
