After being virtually neck-and-neck for weeks ITV’s Mr Selfridge pulled away from Ripper Street on Sunday with 6.1m viewers and a 24.6% audience share.
After a week’s break due to the BAFTAs, Ripper Street returned to BBC One with 4.7m (18.9%), a slightly lower figure than earlier episodes in the run.
Unsurprisingly Call the Midwife was the most watched show on Sunday with 8.6m (30.4%) viewers, whilst US import Person of Interest recorded Channel 5’s highest ratings of the day with 1.1m (4.8%).
ITV’s Great Night Out continued on Friday with a higher than last week, yet still uninspired, 3.3m (15.3%) and was outperformed by a repeat of New Tricks on the Beeb. Don’t hold your breath for a second series.
Saturday saw Channel 4’s medieval drama World Without End draw to a close with 1.1m (5.2%) viewers, while Channel 5’s output failed to pass the million mark; the best it could offer was NCIS with 951k (4.2%) tuning in.
