Geminis fail to break Brampton barrier

Wednesday’s final Gemini gala on CBC was watched by an overnight, estimated late summer audience of 402,000 viewers, That put it fifth across Canada in the 8 p.m. timeslot behind Global (Big Brother drew close to 1.7 million), a rerun of The Listener on CTV, Minute to Winnit on City and American Restoration on History.
The Gemini take was even less of a draw in the 25 to 54-year-old demo, where 113,000 heads were counted. That put it 8th in the timeslot tally, behind everything above plus Dirty Jobs on Discovery, a movie on CTV Two and Food Network’s Iron Chef America.
Last November, the annual salute to the Canadian television industry managed 363,000 on Global in a Saturday night suicide slot opposite a Leafs/Canucks game on Hockey Night in Canada (2.65 mil.).
Last March, host William Shatner boosted the Genies to 480,000.
