    TORONTO, Jan. 16 /CNW/ - For the fourth night in a row, a CTV program
delivered more than two million viewers last night. The much buzzed-about Gil
Grissom departure from CSI won the night with 2.6 million viewers out of
simulcast at 8 p.m. with another 2.2 million for GREY'S ANATOMY at 9 p.m. CSI
wins the crown for the most watched program overall this week for total
viewers, with AMERICAN IDOL winning in A25-54 and A18-49.

    CTV is the only Canadian network to have at least one program attract
more than two million total viewers every day this week thanks to the
powerhouse CSI franchises, AMERICAN IDOL and GREY'S ANATOMY. In fact, CTV is
the only Canadian conventional network to deliver more than two million
viewers this calendar year. So far this week, CTV has 9 out of the Top 10
programs on Canadian television in total viewers as well as A25-54 and A18-49,
with Global coming in at No. 10 with NCIS and 24.
