Really? You care about ratings this week? Tons of pre-emptions and Christmas programming rendered the usual Monday to Sunday recap pointless. Nevertheless, a few numbers pop out:
Sunday’s opening game in the WJHC: 2.94 million viewers on TSN. The Canada-Russia tilt was up 23% from last year’s already lofty hockey numbers.
George Stroumboulopoulos’ The Hour I’ll Never Get Back drew a whopping 381,000 last Friday at 11:05 on CBC for its annual Christmas party.
CTV has yet to announce second season start dates for Dan For Mayor and Hiccups but gave both shows a bit of a test re-run leading up to Christmas. Last Wednesday, Dan drew 340,000 and Hiccups 269,000; Tuesday it was Dan 312,000, Hiccups 276,000; Monday, same order, 290,000, 233,000.
Monday CBC drew 1,328,000 for a showing of Elf, Wednesday’s Polar Express did 1.1 million. CBC’s Xmas movies generally outperformed those on CTV and Global. CTV’s Christmas Eve showing of It’s a Wonderful Life lassoed 664,000.
