Yes, The 63rd annual Emmy Awards was a big winner for CTV Sunday night, drawing 2,336,000 overnight, estimated viewers. That blunted CBC’s Battle of the Blades (1,195,000) but didn’t knock the third season premiere (or competitors Tessa Bonhomme and David Pelletier, right) off the ice.
More rocked was CBC’s new talent reality series Cover Me Canada, which managed 591,000 viewers opposite the Emmys and also fell behind a screening of Iron Man on Global (854,000) and a Sunday Night football game on TSN (594,000). CBC’s pony drama Heartland returned to 727,000 viewers at 7 p.m. opposite Countdown to the Emmys, which drew 1,004,000 on CTV.
