Spectacle is a Huge Hit
Toronto -- The first outing for Elvis Costello's new critically lauded, music/talk series ran away with its Friday-evening time slot.
CTV reported that the first episode of Spectacle: Elvis Costello With ..., which teams the former new waver with another big musical name (Elton John, who was his first week's guest) was watched by 861,000 viewers on Friday at 10 p.m.
That was 36 per cent more than the American crime drama Numb3rs on Global.
A second season has now been confirmed by Sundance.
