Harper solves Murdoch Mysteries for 700,000

Love him or hate him, that guy Harper is ratings gold.
Murdoch Mysteries soared to an overnight, estimated 700,000 viewers Wednesday night on City stations across Canada. That has to be a record audience for the four-year-old series.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper shot his cameo last October as Sgt. Armstrong, a desk cop from the 1890s. In one scene, he seemed oblivious to then prime minister Wildred Laurier.
Then again, Laurier was a Liberal.
The shot-in-Toronto sleuth series, which stars Yanick Bisson, has been drawing in the 450,000 range this summer. Look for John Baird to guest next as the happy-go-lucky town hangman.
