  1. CBC is doing quite well. Heartland is doing very well too and though it doesn’t get to the million viewer mark, it stays stabley close.

  2. This sure is a “glass full” way of expressing the numbers. The Book of Negroes and Schitt’s Creek opened with audiences around 1.6 million and have both since plummeted to below the one-million mark (see Numeris). According to John Doyle the “Creek” is around 700,000.
