House continues to have a stranglehold on the Monday night ratings in Canada, scoring 2,884,000 viewers in its most recent outing according to BBM Canada’s overnight PPM estimates.
A strong second on the night in Canada was CTV’s CSI: Miami at 2,280,000 followed by Monday night’s Dancing with the Stars performance show at just under two million (and likely just above once the CTV “Total” numbers are calculated).
Fourth on the night was Global’s strong sophomore Lie to Me at 1,863,000 followed by the CTV National News at 1,412,000.
CBC’s Battle of the Blades results show drew an impressive 1,237,000 on the night for sixth place overall. A channel cracked the Top-10 with 1,087,000 tuning in for Two and a Half Men (No. 9 for the night).
Football was a big draw Monday, too, with TSN’s 4:30 Winnipeg/Hamilton Thanksgiving game drawing 918,000. TSN scored another 751,000 for the 1 p.m. Calgary/Montreal tilt, and the same number again for the NFL Monday Night Football Jets/Dolphins game.
Less festive were the results for Little Mosque on the Prairie, which squandered that big Blades lead-in and dropped down to a season-low 492,000 viewers. Just Four Laughs got just 207,000 at 9, resulting in another miserable night for Peter Mansbridge and the CBC National News (492,000 at 10, 424,000 at 10:25). Strombo’s Hour, with 105,000 viewers, got creamed again by CTV’s national newscast.
TVTropolis’ idea to show 24 hours of Seinfeld for Thanksgiving peaked at noon with 144,000 viewers. No turkey soup for you!
