Harper solves Murdoch Mysteries for 700,000
Murdoch Mysteries soared to an overnight, estimated 700,000 viewers Wednesday night on City stations across Canada. That has to be a record audience for the four-year-old series.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper shot his cameo last October as Sgt. Armstrong, a desk cop from the 1890s. In one scene, he seemed oblivious to then prime minister Wildred Laurier.
Then again, Laurier was a Liberal.
The shot-in-Toronto sleuth series, which stars Yanick Bisson, has been drawing in the 450,000 range this summer. Look for John Baird to guest next as the happy-go-lucky town hangman.
