Not a happy Canada Day if you are a Canadian broadcaster. A peek at recent ratings show that network numbers have dropped to specialty levels everywhere but at CTV. Some recent examples:
CBC's talent search series Triple Sensation drew just 174,000 Monday night, with only 51,000 in the 25-54-year-old demo. It premiered a week earlier to just 220,000. Just 64,000 tuned in to an old episode of Intelligence on CBC Saturday night--across Canada!
CTV found nearly a million viewers for Merlin Sunday night, with So You Think You Can Dance flirting with 1.5 million last Thursday. A lot of people are still watching reruns of popular shows like CSI Miami and House, but not much else is even worth reporting.
