Robot drama is broadcaster’s biggest original drama for more than a decade
Channel 4’s robot drama Humans began with 4 million viewers, the broadcaster’s biggest original drama for more than a decade and more than twice the number who watched BBC1’s Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell.
Humans, adapted by a pair of Spooks writers from a Swedish TV drama, started with just over 4 million viewers, an 18% share of the audience from 9pm on Sunday, with a five-minute peak of 4.3 million.
It was up more than 200% on Channel 4’s slot average and its biggest original UK drama launch since a new TV ratings methodology was introduced in 2002.
Quite like this, very cleverly done for a TV show in my opinion. The hacker daughter is bloody annoying though, TV, games, films etc are just bloody useless every time they try and do a hacker character.
