TORONTO (June 1, 2015) – With the core television season now at a close, the 2014/2015 Canadian Television Report Card confirms CTV has just wrapped one of its best seasons ever with a year of growth, especially among younger viewers. Showcasing viewers’ enthusiasm for engaging new network television, never before in Canada have five new series ranked among the Top 10 most-watched programs of the season – and all five were on CTV. The achievement comes as CTV delivered all six of the Top 6 new series in Canada – THE FLASH, GOTHAM, MARVEL’S AGENT CARTER, THE ODD COUPLE, HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER, and CSI: CYBER – for all key adults demos. Final data from Numeris also confirms that:

  • CTV saw primetime audience growth of 7% among A25-54, and even higher growth (+10%) among younger viewers aged 18-34.
  • It was CTV’s largest primetime audience in four years among A18-49, and in three years among A25-54 and total viewers.
  • CTV ranked more Top 20 series among A18-34 than ever before on record.
  • The average age of a CTV viewer once again dropped one year in core prime, the only network to do so.

CTV ends the season as the most-watched Canadian television network among total viewers and A25-54 for a record 14 years in a row. And not only that, CTV’s primetime audience has grown 16% among A25-54 – and 37% among total viewers – compared to 13 years ago.
