Weekend ratings round-up: ‘In The Flesh’ debuts with 668k viewers

Zombie drama In The Flesh launched on BBC Three on Sunday with a respectable 668k viewers and a 3.7% share of the audience.

This is an excellent start for the new three-part drama when you consider that it attracted over 100k viewers more than last week’s final episode of Being Human.

Over on BBC One the The Lady Vanishes failed to live up to its name audience wise and saw 6.7m (26.3%) viewers tune in for the remake of this classic tale.

Elsewhere this weekend, The Mentalist was watched by a healthy 1.2m (4.7%) on Channel 5 on Friday whilst 1m (4.3%) people also switched their dial to the fifth channel for the latest episode of NCIS on Saturday.

All data was supplied by Attentional, Digital Spy and The Guardian.
