Hunted Episode 3 - Thursday 18 October 2012

Hunted Episode 3 - Thursday 18 October 2012

The next new episode of HUNTED - "Hourglass" - sees Sam travelling undercover with the criminal multimillionaire she is spying on. She comes face-to-face with Bernard Faroux, the Frenchman she seduced and betrayed in Tangier. He offers to tell her who tried to assassinate her, but only if she gives vital information to him instead of Byzantium.

 

Following the ratings of Episode 2 having dropped by 25%, it's imperative that Lex fans support the show to avoid another Minder-style cancellation.

 

That said, there are several things on the show's side. First off, much like many episodic fictional shows, Doctor Who being a prime example, the likes of HUNTED will pick up a considerable audience from people time-switching and watching at another time. 

 

It certainly hasn't helped the series having the Dave channel running the first look at Red Dwarf Series Ten directly opposite on Thursdays from 9.00pm to 9.30pm.

 

The ratings for episode one of HUNTED did jump considerably when time shifting and other methods of viewing were taken into account.  For its first episode, its originally announced 4.5 million viewers became 5.69 million viewers after all these viewing methods were taken into account.  This made it the 12th watched show of the week on BBC1, behind numerous episodes of Eastenders, Strictly Come Dancing, New Tricks, Merlin, Countryfile, The Paradise, and an edition of the Ten O'Clock News. Let's hope Episode Two does a similar trick.

 

What might assist the show is its foreign sales, and in particular how the show performs in the USA with its co-partner network, Cinemax. It could well be the case that a muted ratings performance in the UK might not mean the end of the road, although it might be the case that a less favourable time slot, or indeed a move to another channel, such as BBC2, might be what the future holds on these shores.
