TORONTO, March 11, 2014 /CNW/ - From home cooks to a girl with
extraordinary powers, CTV claimed two of the Top 3 programs of the
night on Monday, and led every hour of primetime with total viewers and
in the key A25-54 demo. With 1.6 million viewers tuning in, the CTV
original series MASTERCHEF CANADA was the most-watched program of the night with total viewers and in all
key adult demos. Just over halfway through the season with seven
episodes left, last night's MASTERCHEF CANADA saw Dale Kuda eliminated, and bested an original episode of BONES
(Global) by 8% with total viewers, and double-digits among all key
demos (+31% A25-54, +36% A18-49, and +53% A18-34).
In a special timeslot, the new drama BELIEVE from Oscar®-Winner Alfonso Cuarón and Emmy®-Winner J.J. Abrams premiered to 1.3 million viewers before it moves to
its regular Sundays at 9 p.m. ET timeslot beginning this Sunday, March 16. BELIEVE won its 10 p.m. timeslot nationally among total viewers and all key
adult demos, as well as in the key markets of Toronto and Vancouver.
Viewers can now watch last night's episodes of BELIEVE and MASTERCHEF CANADA on demand at CTV.ca and the CTV GO app.

In the next episode of BELIEVE, "Beginners Luck" (airing Sunday, March 16 at 9 p.m. ET on CTV), on the run and in desperate need of money, Tate (Jake
McLaughlin) takes Bo (Johnny Sequoyah) to Atlantic City, where she
instantly bonds with a struggling mother and her sick child. The
involvement of the FBI complicates Skouras' (Kyle MacLachlan) efforts
to covertly recover Bo, while Winter (Delroy Lindo) and Channing (Jamie
Chung) work to stay one step ahead.
And in next week's episode of MASTERCHEF CANADA, "Great Canadian Bake Sale" (airing Monday, March 17 at 8 p.m. ET on CTV), the home cooks raise their Mystery Boxes to reveal a
jaw-dropping array of rare and challenging ingredients. They turn out
to be a selection of the judges' favourite culinary items culled from
their own restaurant kitchens. The home cook who can get creative with
ingredients like Durian, Sea Urchin, Squab, and Kimchi will get to
choose what everyone else tackles in the Elimination Challenge - and
this time the inspiration lies a lot closer to home.
