Fame Academy debut beaten by Popstars; BBC still “happy with” it.
The BBC’s new Fame Academy was easily beaten in the ratings by ITV’s Popstars: The Rivals, but the BBC says it’s “…happy with the programme. We hope viewers will continue to watch as the series continues and the progress of the students develop. This was only the first episode.” About 7.5 million people watched the latest version of Popstars, while 4.6 million watched Fame Academy.
