Coronation Street was the most watched show in last night’s TV ratings (Friday, April 6).
An average audience of 6.6 million tuned in for the first instalment before 6.2 million returned for the second. Both were well down week-on-week, where the latest twist to the ongoing Pat Phelan story line resulted in big numbers on Good Friday.
However Corrie was still the most watched show of the day and easily bettered the other soaps.
Emmerdale did 5.8 million earlier on ITV while EastEnders dripped to 4.9 million on BBC One.
Also on BBC One, the second series of music show Sounds Like Friday Night struggled, interesting just 1.7 million viewers.
MasterChef had 3.9 million viewers while Have I Got News For You kicked off its new series with 4.2 million.
Elsewhere in last night’s ratings, Gogglebox continued with more than 3 million viewers for Channel 4.
An average audience of 2.5 million tuned in for the sixth episode of the new series, down 400,000 viewers week-on-week.
Before, Alan Carr’s new game show I Don’t Like Mondays debuted to fewer than a million viewers in the 8PM hour.
