TORONTO – September 20, 2011) Citytv’s Monday night comedy lineup kicked off premiere week with solid performances of back-to-back episodes of How I Met Your Mother, which averaged 950,000 viewers (Ind. 2+, national) and 1 million viewers (Ind. 2+, national), respectively. In the key A25-54 demo, How I Met Your Mother outperformed the first hour of Dancing with the Stars, winning the highly-competitive 8 – 9pm ET timeslot nationally. Compared to last year’s premiere, How I Met Your Mother saw an increase in viewership of 70 per cent in the A25-54 demo. 

The much-talked-about debut of 2 Broke Girls at 9:30 pm ET last night set a record on Citytv as the highest-rated premiere for a comedy series in network history with an average of 964,000 viewers (Ind. 2+, national).

Premiere week continues tonight with the highly-anticipated premieres of The Biggest Loser at 7pm ET/PT, New Girl at 9pm ET/PT, Raising Hope at 9:30pm ET/PT and Body of Proof at 10pm ET/PT.
