RATINGS! Liar’s viewing figures soar on ITV as BBC’s Rellik drops to new low

ITV’s Liar once again came out on top of BBC One’s Rellik again in last night’s viewing figures.


The two crime thrillers, both written by brothers Harry and Jack Williams (The Missing), went head to head at 9PM for a third week in a row.

In the opening episodes, there was a clear winner with Liar coming out on top with 5.3 million viewers to Rellik’s 3.6 million. Last week the gap between the two shows widened as Liar increased to 5.4 million as Rellik dropped right down to 2.1 million viewers.

Last night the gap got even bigger with Liar climbing to a series high of 5.8 million while Rellik dropped to a woeful low of just 1.5 million viewers – below even Bargain Hunt at midday.

Despite reaching a new high, Liar couldn’t quite outdo the soaps which topped the night. Coronation Street scored the best numbers with 7.2 million and 7.0 million for its two episodes.

EastEnders meanwhile continued with 5.9 million viewers, while Emmerdale was just ahead with 6.1 million.
