The Fall TV Race Heats Up

The battle for the hearts and minds of Canadian viewers is once again being won by American series.
On Wednesday night the return of Criminal Minds at 9 p.m. on CTV (simulcast with CBS) took in 2.97 million viewers which the network says is its best ever rating.
CSI:NY at 10 on CTV took in 2.64 million viewers and bested Global's Melrose Place by 146 per cent or so CTV says.
And nobody's talking about Jay Leno these days, right? CTV says America's Next Top Model with 1.27 million viewers bested Bones over on Global in the all important teens and the 12-34 demographics.
And Thursday night CTV's season premiere of Grey's Anatomy took in 3.3 million viewers, a surge of 38% over last year.
Got that?
