Canada Not Feeling Triple Sensation

Not a happy Canada Day if you are a Canadian broadcaster. A peek at recent ratings show that network numbers have dropped to specialty levels everywhere but at CTV. Some recent examples:
CBC’s talent search series Triple Sensation drew just 174,000 Monday night, with only 51,000 in the 25-54-year-old demo. It premiered a week earlier to just 220,000. Just 64,000 tuned in to an old episode of Intelligence on CBC Saturday night–across Canada!
CTV found nearly a million viewers for Merlin Sunday night, with So You Think You Can Dance flirting with 1.5 million last Thursday. A lot of people are still watching reruns of popular shows like CSI Miami and House, but not much else is even worth reporting.

One Response to “Canada Not Feeling Triple Sensation”

  1. I enjoy watching Triple Sensation. Perhaps the fact there are so few viewers is because there has been no informaiton about the program in the print media. I know CBC faced huge cuts recently. Perhaps they do not have any personnel, or budget, to properly promote this series. I also really enjoy the spin off series “Inspiration and Performance”. Such a shame it is not being seen by more people.
