Over the weekend ratings for Big Brother dropped below 1 million viewers.
The ‘normal’ version of Big Brother just isn’t performing that well for Channel Five. While the Celebrity version, which finished two weeks ago, attracted good ratings for the broadcaster the ‘normal’ version has proved to be a turn off for viewers. Average ratings for the new series are around 1.4 million viewers but on Saturday evening ratings dropped to below 1 million viewers. An average of 900,000 viewers watched an hour long edition on Saturday making the figure for the lowest ever for Big Brother. Even during its dying days on Channel Four the series still managed to keep its head above 1 million.
