Degrassi pulled in 471, 000 viewers on CTV last night! That’s about 100, 000 more than the season 8 premiere. Considering the lack of promotion (at least from what I saw), I’d say that’s pretty good for Degrassi! It’s not nearly as high as Degrassi’s Canadian ratings in season 4/5, but it’s still much better than season 8. Perhaps the new characters are starting to catch on with Canadian audiences? Either that or the Vampire Diaries fans tuned in for Nina Dobrev.
Hopefully Degrassi does well when it premieres on TeenNick this Friday!
