Third episode of ITV2 sitcom attracted 139,000

This week, BBC4 might have slightly overestimated its audience’s interest in music that’s not from the 1970s, while ITV2’s floating zombie-fleers found some benefit in doing it all over again late at night.

The third episode of ITV2 sitcom Zomboat! attracted 139,000/1% at 10pm on Tuesday – fewer than last week (184,000/1%). However, with Thursday’s 12.40am repeat (150,000/6%), this week’s episode totalled 289,000 – more than last week after two showings (275,000).

Thursday’s evening repeat drew the series’ second-best 16-24 adults audience (53,000/40%), behind the opener (68,000/15%).

ITV2’s best non-movie title was the fifth episode of Plebs (500,000/4%) on Monday at 10pm. This was its second-best overnight of this series, after its 30 September launch (600,000/4%). However, it was the lowest so far for 16-24 adults (26,000/5%). 

BBC4’s K-Pop Idols: Inside The Hit Factory drew 178,000/1% on Friday at 9.30pm, fewer than One-Hit Wonders At The BBC (322,000/3%), which followed at 10.30pm, and Marc Bolan: Cosmic Dancer (283,000/5%) at 11.30pm.
