TORONTO, June 21 /CNW/ - North Americans can't get enough FLASHPOINT!
Three episodes into its Season 2 summer run, encore episodes of Canada's
most-watched original drama series are averaging 1.1 million viewers
Friday nights at 9 p.m. ET on CTV. Last Friday's episode was the
most-watched primetime program in North America, with 1.08 million
viewers in Canada and 6.95 million in the United States. In both
countries, FLASHPOINT nearly doubled the audience of its lead-in,
an encore episode of MEDIUM.
In Canada, FLASHPOINT was the #1 primetime program not only among
total viewers, but among all key demos as well, with week-to-week growth
in key adult demos. In the United States, FLASHPOINT has seen
ratings growth since its season premiere three weeks ago, and grew
throughout the hour in both A18-49 and A25-54.
In this Friday's episode, "Custody" (Friday, June 25 at 9 p.m. ET on CTV
and CBS), the SRU respond when a distraught man, Donald (Alan Van
Sprang, THE TUDORS), takes a lawyer at gunpoint. The team discovers
Donald has recently won custody of his two children but suspects his
ex-wife Helen (Kathleen Robertson, THE BUSINESS) is plotting with her
lawyer to steal them back. Investigation leads the team to discover
Donald was right and it's up to the team to perform a risky 'rolling
roadblock' maneuver to stop Helen and bring the children home.
