From a media release:
SAVING HOPE Grows to 1.3 Million Viewers as CTV’s Female-Driven Thursday Night Lineup Reigns
- With only two episodes left until its Fall Finale, SAVING HOPE leads GRACEPOINT simulcast by double digits
Halfway through its fall event, CTV’s own SAVING HOPE solidly owned its Thursdays at 9 p.m. timeslot last night with an initial audience of 1.3 million viewers, preliminary overnight data from Numeris (BBM Canada) confirms. Along with the Top 2 programs of the night – HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER and GREY’S ANATOMY – SAVING HOPE allowed CTV to claim the Top 3 programs of the night among F18-49 and F25-54, as well as three of the Top 4 programs of the night for total viewers and all key demos.
With preliminary Playback + 7 data now in, last Thursday’s (Sept. 25) female-driven lineup on CTV saw the series premiere of one of this fall’s biggest new series HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER climb to 3.1 million (from 2.4 million), the season premiere of GREY’S ANATOMY grow to 2.2 million viewers (from 1.8 million), and the second episode of SAVING HOPE increase to 1.5 million (from 1.2 million).
Winning its timeslot at 9 p.m., the stand-alone broadcast of SAVING HOPE (1.32 million) led the simulcast series premiere of GRACEPOINT (1.1 million; Global/FOX) by double-digits with total viewers and in all key demos (+19% P2; +25% A18-34; +86% A18-49; +54% A25-54). With only two episodes left before its Fall Finale, SAVING HOPE grew 10% with total viewers and 7% among A25-54 over last Thursday’s episode. SAVING HOPE also more than doubled SCANDAL’s (510,000; City/ABC) audiences with total viewers (+158%), as well as in the key A18-49 (+129%) and A25-54 (+145%).
