  1. The first back-to-back episodes of Schitt’s Creek’s were shown on Jan 13, The next day, the media reported 1.4 million viewers (“Off to a dazzling start” announced the Toronto Star). Since then there have been two more episodes – and we have heard nothing. In so far as I think the puerile title is representative of the content – why the subsequent silence?

  2. There’s a lag in ratings reporting from Numeris – we’ll get the following week’s final numbers soon. The overnight numbers show a significant drop – still a decent rating on its own except it shows that many viewers fled.


    So you’re right, a network would only send a media release about numbers when they’re the kind of news they want (and usually they only do for premieres anyway)
