The Big Reunion 2014 continues to struggle in ratings

5th Story (The Big Reunion 2014)

The Big Reunion 2014 is continuing to struggle in the ratings.

The line up for the second series has been pretty lacklusture and it's shown with a huge drop in ratings from last year's first run.

Many of the bands were never really big int he first place and even the more known acts that did sign up - such as Eternal - failed to bring all their former members back together.

And show bosses even had to put together a completely new group in a bid to make up the numbers.

Ratings for the show are now less than half what the ITV2 series was achieving last year with the opening episode down some 500,000 viewers.

In week two the show dipped to its lowest ever rating with just over 300,000 viewers.

Episode three – which featured the Big Reunion super-group 5th Story, revealing the highs and lows of pop stardom for Gareth Gates, Dane Bowers, Adam Rickitt, Kavana, and Kenzie – fared somewhat better. That showing had 600,000 viewers but it was still well down on the 1 million plus who watched the first series last year.

Last week and ratings were down again as Girl Thing were the focus but interested just over 300,000 viewers.

The show was beaten by competition on both mutli-channel rivals E4 and BBC Three who aired Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Junior Paramedics respectively.
