TORONTO, June 6, 2016 /CNW/ - Viewers can't escape Private Eyes, as the latest original Global series delivered an impressive 1.4 million average viewers (2+) with season to date data for the series premiere (May 26) and episode two (June 2). As the #1 drama on both nights, the witty PI series starring Jason Priestley and Cindy Sampson as Canada's latest crime solving duo also won the 9 pm timeslot nationally.
The highly anticipated debut of Private Eyes had viewers buzzing on social media. The premiere episode was a Top 6 trending program Thursday night (May 26) on Twitter in both Canada and the US, with #PrivateEyes trending throughout the first two episodes. Online, Private Eyes continues to increase its audience on GlobalTV.com and Global Go, becoming the top property across both platforms.
On the next episode of Private Eyes (airing Thursday, June 9 at 9 pm ET/PT), Shade and Angie enter the adrenaline-charged world of high stakes horseracing when they are hired by a wealthy couple to track down their stolen prized possession and champion racehorse, Diamond Heist. As Shade and Angie work to find the stolen filly, they are drawn into a world of fixed races, animal activism, and black-market horse breeding. Meanwhile, Shade, never a stellar student, contemplates cheating on his upcoming P.I. exam, because as Angie insists, "no license, no job."
