TORONTO, Nov. 29, 2011 /CNW/ - They said it couldn't be done. Ten seasons later, more viewers watch ETALK than any other entertainment newsmagazine on television - and the audiences continue to break records. CTV looks back at the made-in-Canada success story with ETALK PRESENTS: 10 YEARS OF STARS, SCANDALS AND LIFE ON THE RED CARPET, an all-new one-hour special premiering Monday, Dec. 19 at 7 p.m. ET on CTV (visit CTV.ca to confirm local broadcast times). In its tenth anniversary season, ETALK is experiencing its most-watched season ever, with increases in both total viewers (+14%) and the key A18-49 demo (+5%) nationally. ETALK has also seen growth in total viewers in the key markets of Toronto (+8%), Calgary (+11%) and Vancouver (+17%), with Vancouver also seeing substantial growth in all three key demos (A18-34, +133%; A18-49, +100%; A25-54, +80%). With an average audience of 601,000 viewers, nearly 1.9 million viewers check out ETALK each day, with one in five English Canadians (5.2 million) tuning in at least once a week.* In addition to the 10th Anniversary special, ETALK fans will have six additional celebrity fuelled specials to keep their entertainment fires burning this holiday season (see details below).

In ETALK PRESENTS: 10 YEARS OF STARS, SCANDALS AND LIFE ON THE RED CARPET, anchors Ben Mulroney and Tanya Kim, along with reporters Danielle McGimsie, Traci Melchor, Lainey and Susie Wall, reflect on how this little-show-that-could began. The special features clips from their first interviews and most memorable moments, to breaking celebrity news and the program's support of Canadian artists and our homegrown entertainment industry.
