Tom Daley is a success! Tom’s celebrity diving show Splash!, seems to be a ratings success across the pond.
The Saturday-night diving extravaganza had opened to impressive audiences last weekend and the second episode was no different, pulling in 5.16 million viewers.
While critics basically concluded that the show was so awful it was beyond the stage of even being “so bad it’s good,” TV fans flocked to Twitter to voice their disapproval of the new format.
Daley hit the clubs Saturday night (January 12, 2013), and was seen wearing a ‘London City’ T shirt while leaving via the back door of the popular nightclub Mahiki in the early hours of the morning after an evening of partying.
On Monday, British Swimming chief executive David Sparkes expressed concerns that such commercial commitments were taking time away from his training schedule.
“Tom is an incredibly talented young man, but he’s yet to acheive his full potential and it’s only going to get harder to achieve that Olympic gold medal as he gets older. You can rest assured the next Chinese diving superstar will not have such distractions from training.”
