Looks like House just gave Hiccups the hiccups. According to a Global release, and based on BBM data, the good doctor checked back in with a new episode and drew an overnight, estimated 2,866,000 viewers at 8 o'clock on Global Monday night. That took some of the wind out of the second episodes of CTV comedies Hiccups (1,156,000) and Dan For Mayor (1,109,000). It was the strongest showing for House this winter according to Global.
The CTV rookies blasted out of the gate at 1.9 million each one week earlier after a ton of super-sized Olympic promotion. This week's take for Hiccups and Dan For Mayor still dwarfed audiences for the Canadian comedies opposite Monday at 8 on CBC, 18 to Life (385,000) and Little Mosque (380,000).
Also in the mix nationally at 8 last night was The Bachelor on Citytv (860,000).
CTV rebounded at 9 p.m. with incredibly strong numbers for comedy imports Two and a Half Men and the Big Bang Theory, both around the 2.2 million mark.
