It is down 100,000 on the show’s end in 2006, which was down on 2005.
Previous finales have passed 2.2m.
TEN is claiming big figures for its 8.30pm – 10pm timeslot as 2.3m but this is a peak, and the industry always recognises averages. The overrun of the show also gave a misleading result for Torchwood as just under 1.7m. Scheduled as 9.15 – 10.15 this timeslot was all BB. Figures will be adjusted accordingly.
In the season closer, Victorian hairdresser Aleisha beat gay guy, Zach.
Update: Further info received from TEN claims a 2.3m peak and a 1.9m average, likely to be the adjusted outcome after overruns.
