TONIGHT: Murdoch Mysteries makes CBC debut –

Lookout! Ol’ yellow teeth is back! Monday night is the night Murdoch Mysteries finally comes to CBC. My mom gets one more chance to try and spot me as an extra–I’m Miner No. 7 in tonight’s episode, shot last year way up in Dawson City, The Yukon.
City got one last airing out of Murdoch Mysteries Sunday night, drawing 352,000 viewers. The series now shifts over to CBC, where the fifth season will be re-aired.
In “Murdoch of the Klondike,” Yannick Bisson as detective Murdoch decides to wander about Dawson at the turn of the 20th century. Aaron Ashmore guests as Jack London.
CBC hopes the historical drama will give their Monday night lineup a lift. A two hour The Voice will provide stiff competition, as will the premiere (on NBC) of The Mob Doctor.
The Mob Doctor pulled 1,308,000 Sunday night in pre-release on CTV. The news was not as good for CBC Sunday as their new reality talent search series Over the Rainbow bowed to just 447,000 overnight viewers. The 6th season return of Heartland at 7 p.m. did 788,000. Copper on Showcase drew 253,000 viewers.

  1. Nice to see some numbers for Copper though i wish they were higher. If my memory is accurate then Heartland is looking pretty stable at the start of it’s six season. The Mob Doctor is on FOX not NBC… or did FOX cancel it pre-broadcast and NBC pick it up because it would be the best show they would premiere 🙂

    If you get them i would love to know Copper’s numbers from this past Saturday’s repeats of ep 1 and 2 on Global. Wrapping an NCIS repeat with the broadcast premiere of Copper is an interesting but possibly effective way to boost the numbers on Showcase.
