THE JON DORE TELEVISION SHOW achieves record ratings in second season

Toronto, Ontario (March 25, 2009) — The Comedy Network is cleaning up on Wednesday nights with a hilarious programming line-up that is pulling in top ratings with younger audiences. Over the past month, more viewers Aged 18-34 tuned to The Comedy Network on Wednesday nights from 9-11 p.m. than any other Canadian or U.S. specialty channel, achieving an average audience of 85,700.* Gemini Award nominee and original Comedy Network Production, THE JON DORE TELEVISION SHOW is attracting record audiences in its second season, up 272% among A18-34 compared to Season 1**.

Wednesday’s ratings juggernaut is fuelled by animated fan faves THE SIMPSONS and SOUTH PARK at 9 p.m. ET/PT, and9:30 p.m. ET/PT, followed by home-grown hit THE JON DORE TELEVISION SHOW at 10 p.m. ET/PT and the break-out hit IMPORTANT THINGS WITH DEMETRI MARTIN at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.

In addition to attracting younger audiences, THE JON DORE TELEVISION SHOW is also seeing wide appeal. On March 11, “Jon Needs Cash Quick” attracted 132,000 total viewers in its first airing*.

“The Comedy Network is kicking ass on Wednesday nights, thanks to THE JON DORE TELEVISION SHOW, established animated favourites and critical darling Demitri Martin,” said Michelle Daly, Director of Content, The Comedy Network. “The ratings prove that The Comedy Network continues to be Canada’s go-to channel for all things funny.”

“Jon and the production team have hit a great stride this season and it shows in the ratings,” said John Brunton, Executive Producer, THE JON DORE TELEVISION SHOW.  “The word is definitely getting around that Jon is one of the funniest guys in Canada.”

In tonight’s all-new episode of THE JON DORE TELEVISION SHOW, “Jon Gets Haunted”, Jon consults a ghost researcher and a psychic reader to find out if his apartment really is haunted. He ultimately decides to make peace with the entity and even tries to get it on. In next week’s episode “Jon Wants Justice”, Jon discovers his bleach-stained clothes in the laundry room of his building, and he wants justice; extreme justice! Fueled by revenge, Jon plays detective, and determines that his prime suspect is “The Man in White”.

Also tonight, stand-up comedian, actor, and Emmy®-losing writer Demetri Martin brings his unique brand of observational and surreal humour to The Comedy Network when he explores “coolness” in an all-new episode of the break out hit IMPORTANT THINGS WITH DEMETRI MARTIN.

– CTV wins every hour in primetime last night –

Toronto, ON (March 6, 2009) – CTV’s AMERICAN IDOL continues to be a ratings juggernaut in its 8th season, winning its timeslot every night this week, including last night’s head-to-head win against the fading SURVIVOR. With the Wild Card show determining the final four positions in the Top 13, AMERICAN IDOL (2.1 million) outlasted SURVIVOR (CBS/Global, 1.8 million) by 17% at 8 p.m. AMERICAN IDOL performed particularly well in younger demos, up 30% over SURVIVOR among A18-34 and 12% among A18-49.

AMERICAN IDOL contributed to another Thursday night knock-out for CTV, which was the only network to deliver more than one million viewers in every timeslot from 8-11:30 p.m:

7 – 8 p.m.

CTV’s leading combination of ETALK (367,000) and ACCESS HOLLYWOOD (406,000) once again led ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT CANADA (292,000) and ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT (396,000) on Global.
8 – 9 p.m.

AMERICAN IDOL, which has seen its A18-34 audience increase 6% this year, continues to attract mass audiences three nights per week. Last night’s success over SURVIVOR is particularly evident in Toronto, Canada’s largest television market, where it outperformed the competition in every demo.

9 – 10 p.m.

CSI won the night with 2.47 million viewers, millions more than both THE OFFICE (NBC/Global; 558,000) and 30 ROCK (NBC/City; 448,000). CSI becomes most-watched program of the week so far.

10- 11 p.m.

Up 10% over last week, ER continues to deliver viewers at 10 p.m. with 1.75 million viewers in advance of the rumoured return of George Clooney and Juliana Margulies next week.

11 – 11:30 p.m.

CTV NATIONAL NEWS attracts a one million plus audience with 1.02 million viewers, up 23% over THE NATIONAL (CBC; 828,000) and 31% over GLOBAL NATIONAL (Global; 780,000)
