VIEWERSHIP DROP ON ITV: MARKETING magazine’s Maisie McCabe reported during ITV1’s four-and-a-half hours of coverage for Saturday's Chelsea-Bayern Munich match, the channel averaged 6.47 million viewers between 7:00-11:30pm “across the standard and high definition channels” (MARKETINGMAGAZINE.co.uk, 5/21).
