SFX have reported that The Curse of the Black Spot has picked up a further 1.64 million viewers who recorded the show and watched it within the first week- bring the total so far to 7.85 million.
That gave the show a mighty impressive 35.5% share, which places it just outside of the top ten for that week.
It doesn’t end there though- there’s yet more of you fine folk to stand up and be counted like the extra 1 million who watched via the instant hit of BBC goodness called the iPlayer.
So let’s reiterate for the cheap seats: overnight ratings are not the full picture. There are a plethora of ways to view your favourite programme. Lets not get fixated and just keep watching fantastic episode after fantastic episode; no matter what the medium.
