CTV gets top ratings for Ontario election coverage

Ontarians chose CTV as their broadcaster of choice for Wednesday’s historic provincial election. BBM Nielsen Media Research confirms that CTV drew more viewers than any other network for its Election 2007 coverage with 361,000 viewers in Ontario, 59 per cent more than the CBC (No. 2 with 227,000 viewers) and more than double the election coverage on Global (136,000). In total, more than two million viewers watched all or some part of CTV’s Election 2007 coverage.

"When news matters the most, viewers turn to the network they trust, and rely on for accurate and meaningful coverage," said Robert Hurst, President, CTV News and Current Affairs. "These strong ratings are a reflection of how committed CTV is to delivering the most complete and accurate election coverage."

CTV’s 2.5 hours of election coverage was also No. 1 in the key 18-49 and 25-54 demographics and was far and away the leader in the highly competitive GTA market. The province-wide, live broadcast aired on CTV Toronto, CTV Ottawa, CTV Southwestern Ontario and CTV Northern Ontario. An additional 106,000 viewers tuned into to CTV’s coverage on CTV Newsnet between 9 and 11 p.m.

Armed with resources across the province and an all-star panel of political experts including Ernie Eves, Gerard Kennedy and Olivia Chow, CTV anchors Ken Shaw and Christine Bentley delivered the top-rated Election coverage.

Below is a complete breakdown of audience numbers.
