From CBC:

CBC’s original series SCHITT’S CREEK premiered with 1.36 and 1.37 million viewers respectively tuning in to watch the back-to-back broadcast of episodes one and two last night. The half-hour single-camera comedy created by Eugene and Daniel Levy beat out American newcomer, Marvel’s Agent Carter. SCHITT’S CREEK’s second episode was the most highly rated comedy and the most highly rated half-hour series of the night.

Canadians took to Twitter as the #SchittsCreek hashtag trended throughout the night and into the morning.

The series centres around a wealthy family who suddenly find themselves broke and forced to live in Schitt’s Creek, a small, depressing town they once bought as a joke. With their pampered lives now abandoned, they must confront their new-found poverty and discover what it means to be a family, all within the confines of their new home.

SCHITT’S CREEK is commissioned by CBC, produced by Not A Real Company Productions Inc. and created by Eugene Levy and Daniel Levy.  The executive producers are Eugene Levy, Daniel Levy, Andrew Barnsley, Fred Levy and Ben Feigin.  SCHITT’S CREEK is distributed by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.

  1. only half the american golden globe award watchers but still very impressive,

    i wonder – since we pvr’d it to watch tonite did we get counted ?

    if we didn’t get counted maybe the count is a lot higher cause pvr watchers didn’t get counted ?

  2. The 2nd ep rating higher than the first is significant. It means word of mouth built, more people watched ep 2. That’s a very positive trend.

    And that’s on a night where several other shows got healthy ratings too.
