    TORONTO, Sept. 19 /CNW/ - Flashpoint continues its domination of
primetime, capturing its highest Canadian audience ever as 1.46 million
watched last night on CTV at 10 p.m., topping a previous high of 1.34 million
set on August 7. Canada's No.1 Canadian drama, Flashpoint was the No.1 show of
the night nationally across all key demos, and ranked No.1 with total viewers
in Toronto/Hamilton.

    
    Among the highlights:

    (*) 2.5 million Canadians watched all or part of last night's
        new episode of Flashpoint

    (*) Flashpoint's audience peaked at 10:51 p.m. with 1.66 million viewers

    (*) Flashpoint continues to succeed south of the border, posting a
        series-high 9.66 million viewers, No.1 in the 10 p.m. time-slot.
    

    On the heels of CTV's renewal of the series on August 25th, CBS announced
today that they have picked up 13 episodes of Season 2 of Flashpoint for
broadcast next season. Flashpoint has been CBS' top original scripted series,
averaging 7.73 million viewers, and winning its time period against
non-Olympic competition.

    In the next episode of Flashpoint, "Eagle Two" (Sunday, Sept. 28 at 10
p.m. on CTV), the SRU is handling a routine VIP protection shift when a bomb
goes off. Realizing the bomb was a distraction tactic so that the VIPs wife
could be kidnapped, the SRU attempts to find her. The kidnapping turns to
horror when the wife is found alive - with a remote-controlled collar bomb
around her neck.

    Episodes of Flashpoint can be seen on demand on the CTV Video Player at
