Canadian Idol Being Put on Shelf for 2009
CTV told staff Monday that the "Canadian Idol" will be put on hold for the 2009 broadcast year.
TORONTO -- "Canadian Idol" is being put on the shelf in 2009, CTV announced Tuesday.
The program hosted by Ben Mulroney finished its sixth season this fall and remained a Canadian TV ratings monster, scoring an average of 1.47 million viewers in September.
However, it appears CTV has elected to not produce the costly reality show in a year when advertising revenues are expected to drop sharply.
