Toronto, ON (August 17, 2012) – Another 1.7 million viewers tuned into last night’s all-new episode of SAVING HOPE. Head-to-head against BIG BROTHER, Canada’s #1 new series/summer drama also delivered 6% more viewers than the CBS/GLOBAL simulcast (1.6 million total viewers). SAVING HOPE continues to surge, with last night’s episode delivering new series high overnight audiences with the key A18-34 and A18-49 demos.
Last night’s episode picked up from the emotional fall out after a cliffhanger episode that delivered a series high 1.9 million viewers on July 26 (overnight audience was 1.7 million) and saw Charlie (Michael Shanks) taken off his ventilator.
