Big Brother 2013 ratings continue to struggle

Channel 5

The latest series of Big Brother 2013 is failing to show any signs of picking up viewers.

The fourteenth series kicked off last week, launching to a record low audience of just above 2 million viewers.

Since then the numbers having only dropped, with last night's episode barely interesting 1.3 million people.

Despite a live link to the house for the first half of this week's eviction results, which saw one housemate saved, it was still 100,000 viewers down on the previous night.

An average audience of 1.23 million watched between 10PM and 11PM, with a further 100,000 catching up an hour later on Channel 5+1.

Bit On The Side, hosted by Emma Willis, has also been struggling, with just over 500,000 viewers watching last night's eviction result fallout.

With two big characters now going head to head in the eviction, we'd be surprised if ratings don't continue to fall.

Although no doubt bosses will be praying for at least a slight increase on Friday, with the show's first live eviction in perhaps a better timeslot of 9PM.

Meanwhile, The Apprentice also saw a slight dip in its ratings last night.

The BBC One show fell 300,000 viewers from last week's series high of 6.4 million, but still comfortably won the 9PM slot for the channel.

The series continues next Wednesday night at 9PM.
