FourFour two: We are in for a big battle of the sexes.
The two big players in the UK and US are putting their chips on the screen this week, and we’ve been asked to weigh in.
Who will come out on top?
Read on for our thoughts.
First up, let’s get some stats.
A total of 8.5 million people have bought a ticket for The Man in the High Castle, and this weekend alone, the series has sold nearly 4.5m copies.
We can all agree that this is a phenomenal year for the show, and the fact that it is also the longest-running BBC series on the service makes the ratings particularly strong.
But we can also look at the box office numbers and see that this isn’t an average season, as it has been in the top 10 since its inception.
In total, The Man In The High Castle has grossed over £2.7bn over its run.
That is not something that could have been predicted even a few months ago.
The ratings are also testament to the fact The Man has enjoyed a huge cult following and, to a certain extent, that has been the case for the series since it started, and while the show has grown in popularity, it has also been criticised by fans for its lack of originality and plot twists.
So while The Man’s ratings are certainly impressive, the fact remains that The Man is a show that is about three people, and its audience size is much bigger than the average sitcom.
Despite that, its ratings haven’t been stellar, and despite the huge fan base that The One has attracted, the show is still in the process of moving into its sixth season.
It is worth pointing out, though, that The Men has enjoyed an excellent run with The One, which has sold more than 3m tickets since its launch, and it is only a matter of time before it becomes the top-rated sitcom in the world.
Now, it’s important to recognise that the numbers in this article are based on data from the BBC’s own website, so the figures are a little bit different to what the BBC is reporting.
For the sake of simplicity, we’re going to stick to a figure for the first week of the show’s run as a reference point.
When you compare The One to The Man, the gap between the two is even wider.
On the one hand, the average rating for the two shows is 6.8 out of 10.
However, when you look at each show individually, The One comes out ahead at 7.6, and The Man falls slightly behind at 7/10.
There are a few things to take into account here.
Firstly, The Men is an animated series, so its audience is different to the average UK audience.
And secondly, the ratings on both shows are based off data from a single episode, so it’s not an apples-to-apples comparison.
A quick glance at the top 100 shows on BBC iPlayer shows that The The One is still the most popular of the three, with a whopping 15.7m fans watching the episode last week.
Similarly, The Ones ratings are skewed towards adults, with adults being the largest demographic group and a bigger chunk of its audience.
In comparison, the audience for The One leans more towards teenagers and children, with young people accounting for almost one in four viewers.
Overall, The Last Man is currently in the lead, while The One will continue to struggle, as its ratings continue to fall.
What do you think?
The numbers have been a little tricky for The Last Men, as the show isn’t the most watched in the Top 10, and there’s also been some controversy around the character’s sexuality.
As with The Men, however, The O’Brien and Thea storylines are strong, and their chemistry is an absolute blast to watch.
One thing to note is that the ratings have changed so drastically between seasons, which can have a huge impact on how well a show performs.
Before, The First and Second Seasons were a ratings juggernaut, with each one averaging around 3.7 million viewers.
The final season of The One averaged 6.7million viewers, while the final episode of The Last Girl averaged 8.2million viewers.
This is also where the audience splits can come into play.
Season two of The First saw the audience split in favour of Thea over the other characters, but the viewers who tuned in to watch Thea’s storyline actually supported Thea.
Although Season three of The Second Season was quite different, the overall audience did not split down the middle, and viewers were able to identify the female characters.
This meant that while the male characters were seen as the main story, the female ones were largely overlooked.
That trend continues into the fourth season, with Thea and Theon being the only
