TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2014 /CNW/ - It's case closed on 2014's Fall Premiere
Week, as CTV's CSI returned Sunday night to 2 million viewers, making it the most-watched
program of the day according to preliminary overnight data from Numeris
(BBM Canada). CTV won Sunday with the Top 2 programs of the night for
total viewers and the key A25-54 and A18-49 demos, including ONCE UPON A TIME which won its hour with 1.6 million total viewers.
On Friday, CTV's THE AMAZING RACE settled into its new timeslot with 1.5 million viewers, winning its
timeslot and becoming the most-watched program of the night among the
key adult demos. Meanwhile, the first hour of the special two-hour
season premiere of SHARK TANK at 9 p.m. on CTV TWO more than tripled the audience of UTOPIA
