TORONTO, Jan. 18 /CNW/ - CTV's newest drama, HUMAN TARGET, shot for the top and blew away the competition Friday night as 1.26 million Canadians watched the series premiere. HUMAN TARGET was the No.1 program of the day among total viewers* and CTV's key A25-54 demo. As the high-octane episode unfolded, viewers jumped on board with audiences growing from first half to second half of the hour-long drama. The adrenaline-fueled drama moves to its regular timeslot, Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on CTV, beginning tonight with Episode 2 (visit CTV.ca to confirm local broadcast times).
