A new record...

3million see Inbetweeners bow out

The third series of The Inbetweeners ended with a new record audience last night.

The sitcom was seen by 2.62million on E4, and 343,000 an hour later on E4+1, beating its own record for the most-watched show ever to air on the channel.

The series, which is set to be the last, launched six weeks ago with a combined audience of 2.79million; which it beat three weeks ago with 2.87 million.

But the new overnight Barb figures combine for a total 2.96million – more than 14.5 per cent of the entire TV audience. Only BBC1 and ITV1 rated higher.

It is expected that the comedy will not return for another full series as the characters have left sixth form, but a film about a foreign holiday is in the pipeline.
