Uh oh. Michael bombs Tuesdays and Wednesdays
The other relocated CBC series, The Debaters, managed just 155,000 at 9:30 p.m.
The problem for Michael is that there seems to be no safe slot on any night opposite the full heat of the imported shows on the other networks. Instead of getting beat up by Survivor and Modern Family on Wednesdays, Michael got whacked Tuesday night by Global's NCIS: Los Angeles (2,063,000) and CTV's Dancing with the Stars results show (1,514,000). New Girl--already picked up for a full 24-episode season--also scored 617,000 at 9 on City.
Other Tuesday results: the Rick Mercer Report (874,000) fell below average for the second week in a row. 22 Minutes drew 762,000 overnight, estimated viewers.
For a change it is a Canadian series giving them a fight at 8: CTV's Flashpoint, back strong with a new episode (1,349,000). Glee at Global was down sharply from the week before but still a timeslot winner with 1,495,000 viewers.
New drama import Unforgettable looks solid on CTV at 10, drawing 1,815,000 for its second episode.
