The Big Bang Theory was back in the top spot nationally for the highest average-minute audience (2+) of all daily shows in Canada, according to the Numeris report for Feb. 6 to 12, 2017. The comedy series on CTV, which saw an average audience of 3.99 million viewers, beat out the Grammy Awards on City by more than one million viewers — although the awards were still up from last year.

Global’s Tuesday night drama line-up also fared well, with Bull pulling in an AMA of 2.17 million viewers and NCIS bringing in 2.16 million. Rounding out the top-five was Saturday Night Live, which brought in 1.92 million viewers, its most successful broadcast on Global since 2004.

Big Bang was the number-one daily show for all anglophone markets except for Toronto/Hamilton, where the Grammy Awards took the top spot. NCIS, the Grammys and Bull also landed in the top five in most English-speaking markets.

Other top performers included MacGyver (Global) in Edmonton, Hawaii Five-O (Global) in Edmonton and Calgary, Criminal Minds, This is Us and Blindspot (all CTV) in Montreal and Murdoch Mysteries (CBC) at #5 in Vancouver.

In the francophone market, the season premiere of La voix (TVA) came out on top with more than 2.4 million viewers, after its Junior counterpart held the top spot for most of this past season.
