This fall’s most-talked about series and last fall’s break-out hits join Canada’s most-watched television series on CTV.ca in 2009/10, as the network’s new online lineup was announced today. New big buzz series FLASH FORWARD from ABC Studios, THE BEAUTIFUL LIFE and THE DR. OZ SHOW are among 11 fresh titles joining CTV.ca’s lineup, which already includes blockbusters like GREY’S ANATOMY and LOST. Also joining CTV.ca this season are even more of Canada’s most-watched series, including Top 10 hits THE AMAZING RACE and THE MENTALIST. CTV.ca allows viewers to catch up with their favourite CTV programs, while offering exclusive online content as well.

The new programs solidify CTV.ca’s position as Canada’s most popular online destination for network television video. In June, the latest month for which comScore data is available, CTV.ca delivered three times as many video streams as Global TV (6.15 million vs. 1.9 million) and had more than three times as many unique viewers (575,000 vs. 154,000). With its robust network video offerings, CTV.ca was the #1 choice for Canadian online television consumption over the course of the 2008/09 broadcast season.[1] Last season, the Top 3 series on CTV.ca were GOSSIP GIRL, with more than 10 million video views, followed by #2 GREY’S ANATOMY (#2) and #3 DEGRASSI: THE NEXT GENERATION (see below for remainder of Top 10 online series).[2] The three online hits return, joining more than 30 CTV series available at CTV.ca. In all, more than 200 TV series are available on demand on CTV’s many websites.

“Canadians flocked to CTV.ca during the 2008/2009 television season, embracing our unparalleled lineup of award-winning shows and helping us to achieve stellar growth in the process,” said Stephan Argent, CTV’s Vice-President, Digital Media. “As the leader in Canada’s online video space, we’ve learned a lot about what Canadians want from their online viewing experience. Building on this momentum, today’s announcement will further establish CTV.ca as Canada’s most popular destination for network video.”

Responding to an outpouring of support from fans across Canada, CTV’s own THE LITTLEST HOBO returns home exclusively online with all six seasons to be rolled out over the course of the season.  

To add to viewers’ nostalgia fix, more than 200 RETRO MINISODES, available exclusively on CTV.ca, will provide five-minute snackable episodes from the hit shows of the past, including DIFF’RENT STROKES, TJ HOOKER and CHARLIE’S ANGELS.

Alan (Jon Cryer) and Chelsea (Jennifer Taylor) become best buds, and Charlie (Charlie Sheen) decides to take advantage of the situation.

It’s an international success story. On Saturday, CTV’s Bravo!FACT (Foundation to Assist Canadian Talent) funded short film I MET THE WALRUS won a Daytime Emmy Award® (New Approaches – Daytime Entertainment) and tonight, ETALK has the exclusive back-stage television interview with producer Jerry Levitan.

“Look, look at this thing – it’s pretty wild eh?” Levitan said of his Daytime Emmy Award. Levitan spoke with ETALK at an exclusive backstage gift lounge on Sunday.  “I didn’t really believe that I was going to get it. When they called my name I was just stunned.”

This is not the first time that I MET THE WALRUS has received international attention; in 2008 it was an Oscar® contender for Best Animated Short Film. The Canadian accolades have also been rolling in for this short film. I Met The Walrus premiered at TIFF in 2007 where it was one of the Top Ten Canadian Short Films; it also won two Banff World Television Awards (Animation Programs and Grand Prize for Best Kids and Animation) in June 2009.

“This Emmy win proves that anyone with an idea and passion can have their voice heard; you don’t need a multi-million dollar production,” said Josh Raskin, director, I Met The Walrus.

Awarded a $20,000 Bravo!FACT grant, I MET THE WALRUS had its world television premiere on CTV immediately following the Oscars broadcast and attracted an outstanding 1.5 million viewers, making it one of the most-watched original Canadian productions on television last year.

In May 1969, Levitan was a 14-year-old Beatles fan who invited himself into Lennon’s hotel room and convinced him to do an interview. Forty years later, he parlayed this experience into a short film and then a book. Levitan took the audio from that interview and teamed up with Toronto director/animator Josh Raskin. The result is I Met the Walrus, an intricate, animated visual narrative that accompanies John Lennon’s timeless message, featuring the pen sketches of James Braithwaite and the digital illustrations of Alex Kurina.
