TORONTO, Jan. 24 /CNW/ - It's the most-coveted timeslot in prime time
television. CTV announced today its international hit series FLASHPOINT will conclude its third season with a shocking season finale
immediately following SUPER BOWL XLV (Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Green Bay
Packers) in all markets on Sunday, Feb. 6. In the gripping cliff-hanger episode, Canada's favourite TV cop unit
is threatened like never before as the fate of Team One and the life of
one their own hangs in the balance. The season finale guest stars
renowned actor Victor Garber (ALIAS, ELI STONE) as an elite military
psychologist who sets his sights on destroying Team One.
The scheduling comes following a remarkable mid-season run on Tuesday

viewers on Jan. 4, the series has seen impressive double digit growth
(15-24%) in the three, key adult demos compared to last season, and
series' high audiences among A18-34.
