09 Jan 2015 : Seán Brosnan
The opening episode of TV3’s highly anticipated show ‘Red Rock’ has proven a hit with audiences, as 410,800 people tuned in to watch the debut of the soap when in aired on TV3 on January 7th.

The show was initially watched by an average of 323,000 commanding a 18.3% share, while an additional 18,300 viewed the soap on the TV3 +1 channel, bringing the total number of people to watch the opening episode to 410,800 people representing a commanding 18.31% of the audience share.

‘Red Rock’s’ debut ratings figure was almost level with well-established UK soap ‘Emmerdale’ which pulled in an average of 325,000 viewers when in aired on UTV Ireland. TV3 has also revealed that the episode was also the most streamed debut episode ever on the 3player.

Last night’s episode introduced viewers to a whole host of characters, kicking off with the gruesome discovery of a beaten up Darren Kiely. The discovery reignited a bitter feud between two families - The Kielys and The Hennessys, which looks set to develop further as the show progresses.

The show is co-produced by Element Pictures and Company Pictures and stars Paul Roe, Cathy Belton, Denise McCormack, Adam Weafer, Richard Flood and Pandora McCormack.

‘Red Rock’ airs every Wednesday and Thursday night on TV3. Read IFTN’s interviews with series producer Gareth Philips and with leading members of the cast.
