Ratings round-up: ‘Lightfields’ finale pulls in a disappointing 3.3m

ITV drama suffered another mixed week as Lightfields came to an end with only 3.3m (14.5%) viewers, but Broadchurch continued to perform strongly and attracted 7.2m viewers on Monday night.

New this week was sitcom Plebs, ITV2’s cross between The Inbetweeners and Up Pompeii!, which launched with a healthy 840k (4.3%) viewers.

The Mimic on Channel 4 made an impression with 664k (3.7%) people and the second episode of E4 drama Youngers attracted 397k (1.8%) viewers on Wednesday evening.

Proving as reliable as ever, NCIS and Law and Order: SVU continue to perform consistently for Channel 5 with 1.5m (6.4%) and 816k (4.8%) respectively.

Finally, it was a muted week for BBC drama as both The Syndicate (4.8m) and Prisoners’ Wives (3.8m) shipped viewers for their latest episodes.
