TORONTO, Sept. 20, 2011 /CNW/ - Charlie Harper is officially dead but TWO AND A HALF MEN is alive and kicking! Ashton Kutcher's hugely anticipated debut was watched by 5 million viewers last night on CTV, the most-watched regular series broadcast on Canadian television in six years. Marking its largest audience ever, last night's TWO AND A HALF MEN broadcast goes down in the record books as the second most-watched comedy broadcast ever in Canada. One in three Canadians watching television last night tuned in to some part of the broadcast.

While a record number of viewers tuned in for Charlie's funeral and Walden Schmidt's (played by Ashton Kutcher) wet but splashy arrival, CTV drowned the competition, winning Night 1 of Premiere Week with more viewers in primetime than any other network, winning every individual hour from 8-11 p.m. and claiming five of the Top 6 programs of the night overall.
