TORONTO, April 4 /CNW/ - Bravo! and CTV's new international
co-production THE BORGIAS premiered last night to 575,000 viewers last
night, the largest audience on Bravo! for a television series since
2004, and Bravo!'s most-watched original Canadian production of all
time. It's the fourth most-watched broadcast on Bravo! in the network's
history. In total, more than 1.3 million viewers sampled the two-hour
television event, which peaked with 742,000 viewers.
THE BORGIAS was also the most-watched non-sports specialty program
Sunday night, besting the premiere of WIPEOUT CANADA (TVtropolis;
510,000). Up 65% from any other telecast on Bravo! this year, the
premiere also delivered four-and-half times as many viewers at 10 p.m.
- 12 a.m. ET respectively compared to Bravo! season-to-date timeslot
In the U.S., THE BORGIAS premiere also performed strong. It was
SHOWTIME's largest audience for a new drama in seven years with 1.06
million viewers, just nearly double the audience than in Canada, and
more than 22% higher than their premiere of THE TUDORS.
