Eastenders in Ratings slump

It was also EastEnders worst performance on a Tuesday since 2002.

Meanwhile an hour long edition of ITV1 rival Emmerdale clocked up an audience of 5.8m.

I suppose most of those who watch both soaps would have watched the hour-long programme and recorded EE. I don't think it deserved to have the worst figures since 2002, there have been far worse eppies than that one.

Coincidentally it was the only episode I've watched for a couple of months.

I'd like to think that people turned off because of the poor scriptwriting and storylines............although I'm sure that it will be put down to the clash with Emmerdale and the nice weather. I've never been convinced by the weather excuse and whilst I find it conceivable that EE can lose out to Emmerdale in a head on clash I'd be pretty disappointed if I was in a position of power at the BBC. EE is supposed to be one of the BBC's flagship programmes and if it is losing out (and no disrespect intended here) to Emmerdale (yet again) then there is a big problem.
