As the New Year approached it was a slew of holiday-related programming that had Canadians tuning in across the country according to Numeris results for the week ending Jan. 5.

However, the Sunday night airing of the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards was the most-watched single-night broadcast with an average minute audience of 3 million viewers. The awards ceremony was the most-watched broadcast across all markets save for Quebec where Bye bye 2019 drew more than 4 million viewers to ring in 2020.

Both CBC’s Canada’s NYE: Countdown to 2020 and Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2020 were the top choice for holiday programming, each drawing an AMA of  more than 1.5 million.

In Toronto/Hamilton the Leafs drew viewers to NHL action with an AMA of 575,000 and in Vancouver/Victoria the Canucks brought in an AMA of 271,000.
