Finland 1 353,000    
Estonia 1 244,000 268,000 -24,000

As you can see by the figures above, a very mixed bag of viewing figures but the general trend is that of less viewers in 2014 than in 2013 overall with the big players near the top, Netherlands, Sweden and UK all losing viewers at a rapid rate, with only Belgium saving the Semi from being a ratings disaster.   Poland, of course, also helped because they didn't show the semi last year, neither did Portugal.

Estonia 2 130,000 167,000 -37,000

As you can clearly see - Where we have year on year figures there is a complete difference from Semi Final One.  Clearly Thursday night's semi was this year's banker and, as such, even without Poland who again didn't show it last year, the figures are on the rise for the Thursday semi final , by about 1.3 Million without Poland counted in, compared with the 300,000 viewer loss (again without Poland) that Semi Final One achieved.  Not Surprisingly, qualifying countries and those with a chance in the final fared best of all with Austria and The Netherlands posting significant gains, also the UK, who could vote in this one, also performing well.

Note :Latvia scored 7.5%, Lithuania 8.3% and Estonia 12.1% - Just to complete the final figures.

Big gains in the countries that had a chance in the final, as you would expect, with the UK leading the way with a 1 Million gain in viewers, Austria with 920,000 and Germany with 750,000.  Again, a positive overall trend with, Poland aside, a like for like gain of 1.64 Million viewers over last year (Comparing countries that broadcast the final both in 2014 and 2013).  Negatives here are Ireland's massive drop of almost 50%, Greece, due to their broadcaster change, losing 560,000 and Romania losing 215,000.  However overall the trend seems to be upward.
