The second series of US musical comedy Flight of the Conchords launched with more than 400,000 viewers on BBC4 last night, Tuesday 12 May.
HBO's comedy, which stars New Zealand comedians Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, pulled in 412,000 viewers and a multichannel share of 2.9% between 10.30pm and 10.55pm, according to unofficial overnight figures.
That was well up on the first series, which averaged a 0.7% multichannel share in a 9.30pm slot on Tuesdays on BBC4 in late 2007. The channel said that last night's figure was also almost three times its average multichannel share of 1%.
Flight of the Conchords launched with 161,000 viewers on BBC4 in September 2007.
Before the first episode of the second series, documentary Flight of the Conchords: On Air brought 264,000 viewers and a 1.5% multichannel share to BBC4 between 10.05pm and 10.30pm.
