    Wow, what a difference across the border. The #1 show in terms of viewers here (House) was #7 in the US. Making other comparsions is difficult given that CITY did not provide absolute ratings and no way to see how Chuck did nationally either.

    Last night I watched 3 shows on CITY, 1 on NBC (no CHCH HD available on Bell), 1 on CW and 1 on Global. Nothing on CTV; I also plan to watch two shows that aired last night later in the week (90210 on Global on Friday on Lone Star on FOX on Saturday). Guess I am not a typical viewer, judging by the ratings.
