After a summer of reality TV battling for the top spot, The Big Bang Theory is back with a (big) bang.

The scripted series on CTV pulled in the highest average-minute audience (2+) for the week of Sept. 25 to Oct. 1, according to Numeris. It even still managed to pull in 3.85 million viewers despite being on a new night; its season premiere Sept. 25 was moved to Monday from Thursdsay, a temporary measure during CTV’s broadcast of Thursday Night Football.

Also moved to Mondays for the coming weeks is The Big Bang Theory’s prequel, Young Sheldon. The premiere of the Wonder Years-style comedy brought in an average 3.56 million viewers. Another new show, The Good Doctor, took the third spot, giving CTV the top three finishes for the week. In fourth and fifth were returning series Survivor and new drama Seal Team, respectively, both on Global.

Season premieres that missed the top five included NCIS, Bull, Grey’s Anatomy, Designated Survivor, Will & Grace and This is Us. Although some of those series did crack the top five in specific regions, all Anglophone markets were dominated by Big Bang and Young Sheldon.
