Wednesday Winners: CSI: New York, Dragons

While Fly Boy was away in Yellowknife, those damn PPM numbers just kept being counted. Here’s a quick catch up on the Canadian BBM Canada totals for Tuesday and Wednesday:
There were two big stories Wednesday. First, CTV’s CSI: New York had a huge night, leaping into House territory with 3,466,000 viewers (according to overnight “commercial” estimates. The actual CTV “Total” will be slightly higher). That cross-over with all three CSI shows definitely gave NY a boost.
The other big news–as predicted here last week–was CBC’s Dragon’s Den (featuring Boston Pizza king Jim Treliving, above) smashing through the 2 million barrier with 2,075,000 viewers. If this was a stock, you’d be rich by now if you bought into it just last year when it was pulling closer to 700,000.
Global rookie Glee (featuring Jane Lynch, right) also had a strong return after two weeks of reruns, with 1,685,000 returning for their Glee fix. This show has turned into a goldmine for Fox, with a first season soundtrack just out (Part One), a DVD out before Christmas and millions of song downloads on iTunes.
Other Wednesday numbers: CTV’s Criminal Minds 2,715,000. Global’s Bones 2,281,000. CTV’s local Evening News 1,823,000. National Newscasts: CTV at 11: 1,364,00; Global at 5:30: 1,200,000, CBC at 10 769,000 and at 10:25 557,000.
The Tudors drew 748,000 on CBC. CBC’s Remembrance Day coverage did 622,000 at 10 a.m.
TUESDAY NUMBERS: Last week, CTV was quick to proclaim the new sci-fi series V (with alien stunner Morena Baccarin, left) as the No. 1 new show of the fall–after one airing. This Tuesday, it wasn’t even the No. 1 new show of the night, dropping from over 2 million viewers the week before to a still hefty 1,629,000.
Global’s NCIS: Los Angeles quickly reclaimed its Top Rookie spot with 2,140,000 viewers according to BBM Canada’s overnight estimates.
Both shows placed behind old reliable NCIS with 2,643,000 Global viewers on the night. CTV’s simulcast of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars did 1,864,000 and the CTV supper hour Evening News drew an impressive 1,784,000. Global’s CBS rookie, The Good Wife, managed 1,539,000.
Sportsnet scored a whopping 1,231,000 with Hometeam Hockey across the country.
Further down the list, The National did 628,000 at 10, 437,000 at 10:25. Being Erica went back in time for 504,000.

  2. If u ask me that which drama, action, and suspense show is ma most favorite then ma answer is CSI NY. The reason is they got the best cast in the business and the storyline is awesome. This perfect mix makes this show an all time hit. To re-Watch CSI NY episodes i never wait for its DVD release coz i think its purely a wastage of time. I prefer to Watch CSI NY online and that too with the quality which is better than TV.
