There were few surprises in the Numeris report for the week of May 1 to 7, least of all the fact that The Big Bang Theory on CTV brought in the highest average-minute audience (2+) of all single-night programs for the week.

Pulling in 3.13 million viewers (down slightly from 3.34 million the previous week), Big Bang was followed closely by Global’s Survivor (2.1 million) and NCIS (2.08 million) and Bull (1.84 million). Rounding out the top five was CTV’s Designated Survivor (1.69 million). All five of those series were renewed by their respective U.S. networks leading up to the New York upfronts, which are currently underway.

Big Bang also swept all of the country’s Anglophone regions save for Vancouver/Victoria, where NCIS came out on top. A follow-up episode of The Big Bang Theory which aired Thursday at 9:30 also cracked the top fives in Calgary, Edmonton and Montreal.

In Quebec’s French-speaking market, TVA swept the week, with the finale of La voix on May 7 bringing in 2.43 million viewers for the night (up from 2.11 million last week). The reality competition series was followed in the ranks by Sunday night favourites LOL:-) and Vlog, followed by La poule aux oeufs d’or and an extra episode of La voix on May 1. While La voix has officially finished for the summer, TVA’s youth version of the series, La voix junior, is set to premiere at a later date this fall.
