It was a strong showing for Global the week of April 17 to 23. According to the latest Numeris report, NCIS brought in the highest average minute audience (2+) of all daily programs in Canada. With 2.08 million viewers, the long-running drama series was one of four Global series in the top five.

NCIS was followed by Survivor (1.88 million viewers), CTV’s Designated Survivor (1.85 million viewers), Bull (1.84 million viewers) and NCIS: New Orleans (1.62 million viewers).

The week stopped just short of all the NCIS series shows making the top five, with the Los Angeles iteration coming in in the sixth spot (1.49 million viewers). However, Calgary and Vancouver both saw all three NCIS series in the top five.

Notably absent from the national top five was The Big Bang Theory, which came in as the seventh-highest rated show nationally — a rare slip for the comedy series. However, Big Bang did crack the top five in Montreal and Toronto.

Similar to the previous week’s report, most nightly programs saw fewer viewers than normal due to the airing of the Stanley Cup Playoffs on CBC Monday through Saturday.

After one week off the charts in Quebec, La voix was back on top, with episodes on both Sunday and Monday bringing in more than two million viewers each. Meanwhile, last week’s top program, SRC’s Tout le monde en parle, fell to the fifth spot, although it did not see too significant a drop in viewers.
