Canadians are watching a lot of TV. Adults 18+ watched 24 hours of linear television per week this past Fall, and while younger adults watched less, Adults 18-34 clocked in over 10 hours per week – most of it live.
Here are just a few of the programs we were watching:
- Jeopardy aired its last episode hosted by Alex Trebek on January 8; over 3 million Canadians (2+) tuned in over the course of that week to say goodbye to a legend. We’ll miss you Alex!
- Grey’s Anatomy’s new season reached 10 million Canadians (2+) over its first two McDreamy episodes.
- The Raptors regular-season start on December 23rd drove ratings across all age groups, and the 2021 World Junior Hockey Championship reached over 14 million Canadian fans.
- Quebec’s perennial favourite New Year’s Eve special Bye Bye celebrated with 4.7 million Francophones. Salut la visite 2020!
- The US election was of significant interest to plenty of Canadians. As always, we turned to television to stay up to date with the latest developments, resulting in a massive spike in viewing during election week.
