Chris Evans Blasts Critics As Catchup Figures Boost Flagging ‘Top Gear’ Ratings | TV News
Third time’s the charm with Chris Evans, only this one feels a bit ironic. The Top Gear presenter has blasted those who panned the opening episode of the newly revamped car show formally presented by Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond, as the audience figures rose to more than 6 million when online catch up figures were added.
Unfortunately, such a dip has given rise to a very deep trough, the flopping in ratings on the second episode sparking alarm bells to ring within the BBC despite the boosting of the viewing figures that encouraged Evans to accuse those who didn’t like it that they were “living in the past”.
There is a bigger picture Evans than just catch up viewing figures, I think you’d better pay attention to those a bit less and the overnight figures a bit more.
