This week, CHML’s Scott Thompson wanted to know if anybody is watching the Stanley Cup playoffs. They certainly are when Montreal is involved. The Habs-Bruins Game Seven tilt drew 4.56 million overnight, estimated viewers last week and their sixth match scored 3.67M. West coast games,however, have been struggling to crack the million mark and even non-Montreal Eastern tilts are drawing less than what CBC would routinely draw Saturdays on Hockey Night in Canada. If the Canadiens bow out quickly in this Third Round, CBC’s big money hockey days will be all over.
I also get to say “Schitt’s” on the radio as I talk about my visit earlier this week to the set of the upcoming CBC drama Schitt’s Creek, starring SCTV alumni Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara. You can listen in here.
