Kudos smashes C4 drama ratings record with “Humans”
We were thrilled to read that Humans, the new drama from our client Kudos TV has launched to record breaking figures, indeed it's success was the subject of our latest regular blog.
It cleaned up on Sunday night, smashing the 3m that watched the launch of Indian Summers in February and This Is England ‘86 in September 2010. The series, a co-production with US network AMC, peaked with 4.3m (19%) in the five minutes from 9.35 pm.
It was C4’s biggest drama since the start of 2006; beating an episode of Shameless, which entertained 3.6m (19.1%) in January 2010.
It also nearly trebled the channel’s 1.6m (6.7%) slot average for the past 12 months, according to Barb data provided by overnights.tv.
