The multi-country months long release dates for Sir David Attenborough’s Blue Planet II is working in its favor. The ratings can be included in the amazing milestones achieved by this documentary. Blue Planet II is now currently the most watch TV show in Britain. With 17 Million viewers and counting, it’s the most-watched natural history show in 15 years. There’s no question that it can reach the same viewers or more when it airs on the American channels: BBC America, AMC, IFC, WE tv and SundanceTV earlier this year.
If so, the combined total viewers of Blue Planet II could beat the Winter Olympics (15 Million) touch The Royal Wedding (32 Million viewers), and maybe even the Super Bowl (112 Million) when things are all said and done.
These ratings prove that the binge-worthy sequel to the best documentary ever (the original Blue Planet) comes at the perfect time in TV history. At a time when gritty and dark TV shows filled with Zombies, robots, and swords. When even Star Trek turns dark, Blue Planet II searched for and discovered new wonders of the deep and remains ever so optimistic about the future of our oceans despite the dangers of Global Warming.
With all the new tech that has come out since 2001. Blue Planet II seeks out more strange creatures and learns a little bit more about life in the Ocean. The most mysterious place on Earth.
