Ok... I got the official scoop on why Nickelback was #1...
BDS does not produce a year-end audience chart. CMN therefore obviously doesn't print one. The chart was compiled by a secondary source that ONLY took the weekly audience totals from the Top 20 of the top 100 chart that's printed in CMN. I've been told that the 2004's year end will expand to the top 40 titles' weekly totals. BDS Canada has no plans on ever doing a year-end audience chart.
With that information, a source gave me total audience totals for the year-end Top 10, which is kinda cool. Remember, these totals only reflect a top20 chart appearance, and not gold, recurrent or below top 20 airplay.
My source also noted that the top audience levels were significantly lower than 2002 (also using the same top 20 chart methodology). I got the top 10 with those numbers too!!
#1 AVRIL LAVIGNE -- Complicated (414 million) #2 SHERYL CROW -- Soak Up The Sun (383 million) #3 CELINE DION -- A New Day Has Come (380 million) #4 CHAD KROEGER/ JOSEY SCOTT -- Hero (313 million) #5 FIVE FOR FIGHTING -- Superman... (283 million) #6 THE CALLING -- Wherever You Will Go (274 million) #7 VANESSA CARLTON -- A Thousand... (266 million) #8 JIMMY EAT WORLD -- The Middle (243 million) #9 ENRIQUE IGLESIAS -- Escape (225 million) #10 OUR LADY PEACE -- Somewhere... (224.4 million)
It's weird to think that any of 2002's top 6 could have been 2003's number 1.
It would have been neat to compare 2004's year-end totals with the previous years. Oh well. I guess now that the 2nd party will be using the top 40 instead of 20, maybe we'll get a bit more of an accurate chart.
Let's lobby BDS for a true audience year-end chart! LOL.
