Superstar continues to lose viewers as it’s embarrassingly trounced by Countryfile
Superstar – which is the brainchild of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber who’s searching for a male singer to play the lead role of Jesus in a new adaptation of hit musical Jesus Christ Superstar – has been embarrassingly trounced in the viewer ratings league by BBC show Countryfile as viewers abandon the talent quest show in their droves.
Saturday night’s installment of Superstar managed just three million viewers, which, when compared to the 4.3million who watched National Lottery: Secret Fortune, is somewhat humiliating.
But worse was to come on the show’s live edition on Sunday when, as mentioned, double the number of viewers tuned in to Countryfile.
Superstar’s poor viewing figures are in sharp contrast to the average viewing figures Lloyd Webber saw in 2007 with his show, Any Dream Will Do, which attracted an average audience of 6.2 million, and ‘I’d Do Anything’ the following year regularly register audiences of six million…
Superstar viewers were of course now voting for the first elimination of the series during the weekend, which saw Afnan Ifitikah leave the contest.
Ten performers now remain to battle it out for that lead role in a touring version of the musical extravaganza, which will visit a number of arenas around the UK later this year.
Why do you think Superstar is doing so badly?
