Sophie was up slightly in Week Two, to 395,000 CBC viewers. Maybe we can nudge that over the 400,000 mark next week thanks to my Canadian Press profile of beautiful brunette Natalie Brown. I spoke with her two weeks ago at the CBC fall launch and back in June at the CBC upfront and was charmed both times. She seems fairly ego-less to be in this crazy business.

Other Wednesday overnight numbers: Little Mosque on the Prairie 684,000, CTV's So You Think You Can Dance Canada 1,430,000 (a new high for the series), Global's surprisingly strong Bones 1,733,000.
The big winner on the night: CSI: NY, which grabbed 2,283,000 viewers at 10 p.m. I have no idea why.
Last week's BBM NMR numbers show Global one-two nationally with House (2,324,000) and Survivor: Gambon (2,166,000) topping the list across Canada Sept. 29-Oct. 5. Led by the return of Desperate Housewives (2,067,000), CTV took the next six spots; CSI: Miami (2, 013,000 was Canada's fourth most watched show. Bones put Global back in the Top-10 at No. 9 with 1,514,000 viewers. CBC's highest-rated show was the Sunday Night News (No. 20), with 971,000 viewers.
