One thought on “CBC schedule garners record-breaking numbers”
CBC is probably the most-watched network at our house. The kiddos like CBC Kids and we often watch news on CBC while eating supper. Everyone in my house likes Heartland–my daughter likes to watch reruns of it after CBC Kids are done–she also watches reruns on APTN (she loves horses). And this past season I’ve enjoyed Strange Empire, Republic of Doyle, Book of Negroes and Schitts Creek plus I’m looking forward to upcoming miniseries Ascension and X Company. Sidenote: After this week I decided to drop Schitts Creek–its rare I ever stick long with a half-hour comedy as I’m not fond of the format.
