Vancouver 5, Leafs 3, Gemini's shut out
Perhaps Don Cherry should host the Gemini Awards next year.
A repeat of Flashpoint at 8 p.m. drew 639,000 Saturday opposite the Geminis. Even a repeat of America's Funniest Videos on YTV at 8 beat the combined two network take for the Gemini's.
Next year: schedule this salute to Canadian TV on a Sunday night at the end of October, when many of the powerhouse U.S. imports are taking a week off to catch their breath for the November sweeps. Saturday night in November on Global is too deep a hole for even Cory Monteith to surmount.
