CTV Claims Largest Election Night Audience

By Patrick O’Rourke for MobileSyrup.com   OCT 22, 2019

Bell-owned CTV says that its federal election night coverage across CTV News Channel and BNN Bloomberg was the most-watched in Canada, attracting an average audience of 1.6 million viewers between 7pm and 2am ET (4pm and 11pm PT).

Further, during the “head-to-head” coverage window running from 9pm to 2am ET (6pm and 11pm PT), CTV says it had a “33 percent advantage” over CBC’s network (1.1 million) and three times the audience of Global (470,000).

CTV‘s Monday night coverage peaked at 2.9 million viewers at 11:11pm ET (8:11pm PT). The network also says that CP24’s live coverage brought in 1.6 million unique viewers between (4pm and 11pm PT), hitting 547,000 viewers at its peak at 10:32pm.

CTV is available through cable, the web and Android, iOS and Apple TV apps.

I much preferred the Rosie show on CBC. Granted there were some escapees from Madame Tussauds just like CTV but the panels were far more insightful on The Corp. Rosie hit the nail on the head when she predicted Ralph Goodale to The Senate to at least have some Ottawa connection to The West. As usual Andrew Coyne has great insight into Canadian politics. His discussion on the Conservative base lack of growth was excellent. He said the need to reach out to grow.

oh brother

I tried to watch the “major” networks. I shut off after a few minutes of each. I discovered that REBEL Media was streaming live. I ended up watching their coverage. I found that their commentary and analysis made more sense than the big budget networks. Apparently, REBEL hires their reporters based on qualifications, rather than gender and skin colour.

Indeed, the REBEL seems to be more about merit rather than one’s sex or melanin content.
