The Christmas Day episode of Dr Who, a rare BBC programme on BBC America this festive period, ranked 44th most popular amongst US cable viewers.
“The Return of Doctor Mysterio,” earned a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 age group, and 1.14 million total viewers of all ages. Both figures are way ahead of a typical night for BBC America, but off a little from the 0.5 and 1.24 million viewers for last year’s outing. For comparison, the top ranked tv show across all stations on Christmas Day was NBC's coverage of the Denver Broncos v Kansas City Chiefs, watched by 8.2m.
At home, the Doctor was watched by 5.68m according to the overnight ratings; 27.1% share. That's compared with 5.8m last year.
