Citytv gained more than 20 per cent year-over-year growth in audience share for fall television's premiere week, the TV network said Tuesday, partly as a result of the network's expansion. Citytv's national market share for the week Sept. 24 to 30 rose 22 per cent from the same period a year earlier, the broadcaster, owned by Rogers Communications Inc., said in a release. Rogers is expanding its Citytv viewership through the purchase of CJNT-TV from Channel Zero Inc. and the Saskatchewan Communications Network (SCN) from Bluepoint Investments Inc. "Without a doubt, this is Citytv's strongest—and most competitive—prime-time schedule in network history. And the viewers clearly agree," Scott Moore, president of broadcasting at Rogers Media, said in a statement. "With Citytv's expanded footprint, we are now in more than nine million homes, reaching more viewers than ever before, and our goal of delivering our world-class content to a national audience is firmly within our grasp." Citytv said shows 2 Broke Girls, Revolution, Person of Interest, and Modern Family helped drive viewership levels higher.
