TORONTO, June 22, 2015 /CNW/ - Starting June 24, Global's homegrown hit  Rookie Blue moves to an all new timeslot on Wednesday nights at 9pm ET/PT. The nation's top Canadian drama of 2015 (A18-49, A25-54) had an explosive premiere this spring, and is averaging over 1.5 million weekly viewers (2+) with no intention of slowing down.

This Wednesday's all-new episode starts with a bang after a community-outreach baseball game erupts in a drive-by shooting and Gail's relationship with her brother, Steve Peck, is put to the test in the search for the shooter. Meanwhile, Sam plans a getaway with Andy up to Oliver's cabin, which goes off the rails in every possible way – except one.

The sixth season of Rookie Blue has been chock-full of dramatic, edge-of-your-seat moments anchoring the series as Global's #1 Canadian series of 2015. For additional data highlights, please see below.
