He’s in trouble: 60,000 viewers switch off Tommy Tiernan show as ratings take a nosedive

Viewers continue to ignore Tommy Tiernan’s Saturday night show which lost over 60,000 viewers last weekend.

Figures released by RTE show that the Navarrese comedian continues to bleed viewers dry since his show returned to our screens in January, reports The Mirror.

On Saturday, Tommy averaged 336,000 tune-ins, a drop of 62,000 from the 398,000 tune-in last Saturday.

An RTE spokesperson confirmed the figures: “The Tommy Tiernan Show on Saturday (11 Feb) had an average audience of 336,000 viewers (Live Plus VOSDAL) on RTÉ One (inc RTÉ One +1) and a 35% share of the audience. This series of The Tommy Tiernan Show has had 363,600 streams on the RTÉ Player to date,” reports The Mirror.

On Saturday, former Miss Universe contestant Roz Purcell spoke about the impact an eating disorder has had on his physical and mental health.

The Tipperary native, who wowed fans after walking through the difficult line of questions, took to Instagram to reveal that she wasn’t expecting such a difficult conversation.

“I was really, really nervous about doing this show, as I’ve gotten older I feel far more overwhelmed about doing interviews, especially a big one like this, so I’ve avoided most for the past 2 years,” she began, reports The Mirror.

RTE data also revealed that Ireland’s Six Nations match against France saw an average of 738,000 people tuned into RTE2, with 70% audience participation and a further 122,000 live streaming on RTÉ Player.
