After facing its first drop of Season 4 last week, Downton Abbey was up again on Sunday night on the UK’s ITV1. The period drama’s fourth episode averaged 9.4M viewers, a 200K increase on last week’s installment. Episode 4 was 1M off the September 22nd premiere which was the show’s best debut across all seasons. Downton is now facing off against Homeland which started its third season on Channel 4 in the same 9 PM time slot last week. However, local reviews have not been strong and the series’ second episode averaged 1.94M viewers last night in what Broadcast says is the show’s lowest audience ever for Channel 4.
