V Falls Back to Earth

CTV is still running ads declaring V as the No. 1 new show of the season. Well, in its third outing, it dropped again, down to 1,325,000 viewers (according to BBM Canada overnight estimates). That’s down about 700,000 from its premiere three weeks ago and for the second week in a row well back of the true No. 1 new show of the season–Global’s NCIS: Los Angeles, which drew 1,890,000 Tuesday night.
V barely edged out another Tuesday winner for Global, The Good Wife, which drew 1,321,000. V also now sits back of Battle of the Blades (season avg: 1,749,000 for the Sunday performance episodes) and Glee in terms of fall launch season averages.
