Fearlessly pushing boundaries, THE KIDS IN THE HALL – DEATH COMES TO TOWN season premiere last night snagged 1.054 million viewers, 600,000 in the coveted age 25-54 category. During their 15-year hiatus from network television, the Kids have continued to grow their audiences online and attract new fans across several generations.
“It’s great to have the Kids back at the CBC and collaborating with them has been an extremely rewarding experience for us,” stated Kirstine Stewart, general manager, CBC TV. “The result is great comedy and Canadians are obviously enjoying the show in huge numbers.”
“Wow, if we had numbers like this the first time around, we may not have stopped!” comments Executive Producer Bruce McCulloch. “We are thrilled with the response and very happy that the CBC gave us this opportunity and a great creative environment. We feel really lucky.”
