CBC’s darkhorse primetime hit “Aftermath” has won the much coveted Friday night time slot for the third week in a row, handily defeating NBR’s veteran “Castaways” reality show. The show’s unexpected success has sparked a scramble among CBC’s competitors for mid-season replacements to face the ratings juggernaut.
“It’s single-handedly revived the art of the scripted drama,” said Jim Chase, media critic for the New York Herald. “In an age of Reality TV, ‘Aftermath’ proves that great writing and solid acting still has a place in network television.”
The show’s gritty and grounded approach to a post-technology world has been a hit with critics and viewers alike. “Aftermath” also rules the social media landscape, its MyFriends page garnering nearly 20 million fans, a world record.
