It's now lost more then half of its audience from just 2 years ago:

"Earlier in the evening, the second half of a two-part blockbuster episode of Doctor Who hit BBC One with an audience of 4.6M between 7PM and 8PM.

It was down 8% on the 5M viewers who tuned in last week, and the overnight audience was Jodie Whittaker’s lowest yet as the Tardis-traveling Time Lord."
----------------------------------------

Between the new Doctor's salon perfect hair no matter the situation, horrifically boring woke supporting cast, and plot lines that are... well, what you'd expect them to be, people are longing for the good old days of when the silly children's show wasa fun children's show.

How can it be a "Blockbuster" show if it's down 8% from the first episode?

I know, deciding which satan-worshipping pedophile should have access to nuclear weaponry can get pretty wiry.  But worry not, this is why we have the ‘Marketplace of Ideas’; so we can work our asses off to articulately plead for the mercy of psychopaths who will ultimately get their way anyway.

...And viewership dropped again, this time to less the a half million:

"BBC America's Doctor Who ratings continued to decline with the release of Episode 3 "Orphan 55."

TV Series Finale reports Doctor Who Episode 3 "Orphan 55" had an abysmal .10 rating with total viewers only reaching 468,000.

This is more than a 20% decline from Episode 2, Spyfall: Part Two.

Spyfall: Part Two had a .15 rating and only 589,000 total viewers. That was a more than 25% decline from the premiere which had a .19 rating and 790,000 total viewers."
--------------------------------------------------

Meanwhile, as noted in another thread, RISE OF SKYWALKER will likely lose money.

Get woke, go broke indeed.

AND the show's now in straight up ratings free-fall, losing almost another 200,000 viewers from the last show:

"Doctor Who is the need of a defibrillator as the show continues to have one foot in the grave as its latest episode is the worst viewed in 31 years of its 57-year history.

Sunday's episode, "Nikola Tesla's Night of Terror," was only watched by 4.04 million viewers in the UK.

We have to go way back to Season 23 of September, 1986 to see a lesser amount of viewers as "The Mysterious Planet" Part Four only had 3.7 million viewers tuning in.

Episode 1 "Spyfall, Part 1": 4.9 million

Episode 2 "Spyfall, Part 2": 4.6 million

Episode 3 "Orphan 55": 4.19 million

Episode 4 "Nikola Tesla's Night of Terror": 4.04 million.
------------------------------

The show now has less then 13% approval from Rotten Tomato voters, so naturally Rotten Tomatoes has begun deleting negative votes:

"Rotten Tomatoes is once again being accused of removing reviews, this time for Doctor Who, and doctoring the Audience Score.

The movie review aggregate site owned by Comcast's Fandango and run by a former exec at Disney has been accused of similar behavior for Captain Marvel and Disney Star Wars.

Season 12 for Doctor Who is currently the lowest-rated season for the show by fans at Rotten Tomatoes with a 13% Audience Score.

Following Sunday's episode - the least-watched episode in 31 years and the least-watched episode of the new series - fans took to Rotten Tomatoes to post their Doctor Who reviews, with some noting that previous reviews have been deleted or that current ones haven't been posted.

If true, that would mean the Doctor Who Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score is even lower than 13%.

"Very disappointing, it seems they learned nothing from reviews of season 11. I'm reposting this review, my first was removed," said a user of the site.

Another user offered a similar experience: "About half of the reviews, including mine, are gone. Rotten Tomatoes is doing their best to raise the user score and it keeps dropping to the low teens. This incarnation of Doctor Who is all preachy and holier than thou. Terrible writing. Terrible pacing and no originality. They keep borrowing from previous, better episodes.
"
-------------------------------------

Speaking of awful shows, BATMOWAN lost nearly 50% of it's audience in one week, after the last ep named, "How Queer Everything is Today!" revealed the character as a lezzie:

"Bad news for The CW's Batwoman series as following the big Crisis On Infinite Earth's crossover, its ratings collapse, as the show suffers its worst viewership to date with the "How Queer Everything Is Today!" episode.

Not including the Crisis crossover episode, Batwoman has been averaging around 1.26 million viewers, but the post-Crisis episode that aired Sunday, only managed a series low 780k viewers.

That's a 38% drop from the season average and a loss of over 480k viewers.

This is also the first time that Batwoman has had a lower amount of viewers than Supergirl."

Race to the bottom with no winners.

Race to the bottom with no winners.

And that bottom keeps getting lower as the newest ep dropped to 3.81, meaning the show has now lost over a million viewers from the season premiere. 

Look for those ratings to keep on a sinking as the BBC revealed that the Doctor had always been a woman, or, at least, had been a woman in xis original form... and was also black.  In other words, current producers aren't content to destroy the current show, but also the canon as well.

It takes two to sink a franchise
