DZIESMA 2013: LOW TV RATES HIGH TELEVOTING
LTV has officialy published the viewing figures for semifinals and the final of this year national final.
But the results are not so promising. Both semifinals and the final had a lower rate than last year.
First semifinal had a lower rate for about 3% or 60.000 viewers, while the second semifinal was down for about 2% or 50.000 viewers. The final watched by just over 9% or 183.000 people. But that is 4% less than last year or in viewers, over 80.000.
Surprisingly, number of votes have risen. In the first round between 12 songs, two more than last year, over 18.000 votes were collected and that is 5000 votes more. In the second round last year there was almost 10.000 votes, while this year, 6000 votes more have been counted down, but these results are far behind the 2009 edition, where Intars solely collected over 46.000 votes.
