UK TV Ratings: Guy Ritchie’s Netflix Caper ‘The Gentlemen’ Breaks Into Most-Watched List

The Gentlemen features Ray Winstone as a barbeque-devouring drug lord, and the Guy Ritchie series has put in a meaty display with British audiences.

The crime drama premiered on March 7 with an audience of more than 3.5M, according to viewing figures made available by Barb, the UK’s audience research body.

The performance secured The Gentlemen 27th place in a list of the 50 most-watched TV shows in the UK during the seven days to March 10.

The highest-rated show of the week was Death In Paradise, which was watched by 7.3M on the BBC, according to the Barb figures.

The Gentlemen beat other notable Netflix launches in 2024, including One Day‘s audience of 1.7M in February and Millie Bobby Brown film Damsel, which was seen by 1.8M in its first week.

Starring Theo James and Kaya Scodelario, The Gentlemen could not, however, match Fool Me Once’s blockbuster debut of 6.3M viewers in January.

Netflix’s UK chief Anne Mensah revealed last week that Fool Me Once is now the streaming service’s eighth most-watched original on record.

Barb ratings supplier Overnights.TV has this chart showing how The Gentlemen and Damsel performed after they premiered on March 7 and 8 respectively.
