Following the official release of his memoir “Spare” on Tuesday, a number of TV interviews began airing on Sunday.
ITV, the largest TV network in the UK, attracted 4.2 million people overall across ITV and streaming service ITVX for their interview with Prince Harry, which aired Sunday evening. According to ITV, the interview had a peak audience of 4.6 million viewers across TV and streaming.
It was ITV’s highest-rated factual program in more than a year thanks to the TV overnight audience. The business, managed by CEO Carolyn McCall, released the overnight rating information for the Monday interview from 9 to 10:35 p.m.
Comparatively, the Happy Valley broadcast on the BBC from 9 to 10 p.m. averaged 5.25 million viewers.
A series of interviews with the Duke of Sussex started broadcasting after a week of revelations drawn from Prince Harry’s memoir Spare, which is officially available on Tuesday but unintentionally went on sale in Spain early. These interviews have the potential to further widen the divide with his family.
