Ratings roundup: ‘Being Human’, ‘Outcasts’ and ‘Bedlam’ all drop

BBC One’s space drama Outcasts dropped to just 1.5 million viewers in its new Sunday night slot.

Episode 6 was the show’s first outing since being moved from its previous Monday night primetime slot.

Earlier on the channel, Andrew Davies’ South Riding continued with a strong 6.1 million tuning in for the second episode of the four-part Winifred Holtby adaptation. Meanwhile, over on BBC Three, Being Human dropped slightly to a still-impressive 977,000 viewers for Episode 6 of the supernatural show’s third series.

Also dipping was Sky Living’s paranormal drama Bedlam, starring Will Young, with Episode 4 attracting only 189,000 viewers last night. The show debuted with 358,800 viewers for its first episode last month.

BBC One legal drama Silk, starring former Spooks actor Rupert Penry-Jones, held onto the majority of last week’s debut audience, however, with 5 million watching last night’s second episode.

Channel 4’s new sitcom Friday Night Dinner, starring Simon Bird (The Inbetweeners) and Tamsin Greig (Green Wing), launched with a promising audience of 2.1 million viewers on Friday.
