Ever notice how Canadian TV overnights take several overnights? Should they call them “Over a couple of nights?” Monday’s BBM/NMR estimates show The Border drew 548,000, up a bit from last week. The Week The Women Went went way up, to 929,000. Degrassi: 426,000. Corner Gas: 1,286,000.
Tuesday, MVP continues to skate into the boards for CBC, with just 278,000 tuning in. The Guard managed 504,000 on Global. CBC’s back-to-back comedies Rick Mercer and This Hour Has 22 Minutes clocked 856,000 and 748,000 respectively. Tuesdays big draw, of course, was CTV’s simulcast of American Idol, with 2,193,000 viewers–huge but not as crazy huge as in season’s past.
Before you ask, the show I keep forgetting–Heartland–drew 509,000 CBC viewers Sunday.
