Good News: Global TV’s summer hit Rookie Blue, has just been picked up for a second season. Even better news is that ABC picked it up too! The show premiered with over 2.1 millions viewers and has been maintaining great numbers ever since. So really it was a no brainer, but this was the hit that Global TV so desperately needed. I can’t think of the last time that they launched such a terrific original series. (Sorry Train 48)
Bad News: Unfortunately CTV’s The Bridge hasn’t been as successful in the States. It premiered this past Saturday with two episodes and the ratings weren’t good. How bad were they? Cops and America’s Funniest Home Videos got higher numbers. Both of those shows are more than 20 years old. Yikes. So while the future of The Bridge doesn’t necessarily look good on CBS, CTV has already renewed this other cop series for a second season!
