Even though we know that the Poldark season 3 ratings don’t matter that much to the show’s short-term survival, they’re worth watching! That’s one of the reasons why we continue to bring you updates on the Aidan Turner series at the moment.
The latest news that we’ve got on the subject of the show can certainly be defined as good, and it’s ratings consistency week to week. Sure, the Aidan Turner series was down about 100,000 viewers versus the week prior, but we’re willing to cite the busy day of television as the reason for that. In between the end of Wimbledon and the Doctor Who reveal earlier in the day, there may have been some people out there who simply had enough of TV for the day and needed a little bit of a break. We certainly wouldn’t blame them for that.
To date, Poldark has shown very much why they are deserving of a fifth season — they’ve already got a fourth season, but with there being more Winston Graham books to adapt, we’re far from opposed to them going away and picking up as many different seasons of the show as possible. If it gets the fine folks over at the BBC on the way to telling the full story, we’re certainly going to rejoice that and then some.
For all of you American viewers, remember that Poldark season 3 will premiere over on PBS this fall. We’re going to continue to have some further coverage of it to go along with what we’re doing already for the British version.
Elsewhere on TV…
According to Telly Mix, the last episode of The Voice Kids had a pretty respectable performance, with around 3.4 million viewers catching to see how everything was going to unfold. This is far from a bad performance in comparison to some past outings, but we’re still not sure if it merits there being another edition of the show down the road. We’re not even sure that we need the main version of The Voice UK anymore given that we still have both Britain’s Got Talent and The X Factor — the fact that all of these shows air on the same network in ITV make them all a little bit more expendable in our mind.
Meanwhile, the big winner of the night was Countryfile over on BBC, which managed to top the 5 million viewer threshold. For one reason or another, viewers in the UK cannot get enough of this series, and it does still consistently dominate. As an American writer, we don’t have anything in the country that serves as any sort of accurate comparison.
