Citytv Flattered by CTV's Ratings Comparison

TORONTO, Dec. 15, 2011 /CNW/ – In response to CTV’s ‘Fall Ratings Report
Card’ earlier today, Scott Moore, President of Broadcasting for Rogers
Media, had this to say:

“We are flattered that CTV considers Citytv to be on a level playing
field, despite the fact that CTV is in 98% of Canadian homes while
Citytv currently reaches 72%.  We consider their comparisons a
compliment, especially since Citytv is only in its second year of
Hollywood prime-time programming.  Citytv is gaining ground and others
are obviously looking over their shoulders.  The truth is, our
year-over-year growth is far outpacing CTV’s.  And we are excited by
the growth of Sportsnet, as it continues to take share from TSN.  As
Citytv continues to grow and deliver more robust premium content, we
look forward to a long, healthy and respectful competition with CTV.”
