Couple struggle to keep viewers

Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigans new TV show has lost over three quarters of its viewers in just 3 weeks.

Richard And Judys New Position originally attracted an audience of 100,000 when it launched on UKTV Watch at the beginning of the month.

But figures fell to 21,000 last Monday.

Channel controller Matthew Littleford defended the couple.

It’s a great show – well made, full of the inimitable Richard and Judy magic and a very high calibre of guests, he tells the Daily Mirror.

We’re confident ratings will rise.
