The New Canadian TV Season Has Started

Now we know why CTV forks out a fortune for prime time U.S. imports.
Monday night marked the official start of the fall TV season and a new episode of CSI: Miami on CTV simulcast with CBS drew 3.05 million viewers.
There's no way any Canadian series can compete with those figures.
By contrast Global's Heroes notched a disappointing 597,000 viewers.
And for comparison Citytv's Jay Leno Show was down to 462,000 viewers, an indication it will be trounced by CBS's procedurals every time there's a new available episode.
And CBS:Miami is the reason Lloyd Robertson's 11 p.m. newscast reached 1.43 million viewers.
Got all that?
