The gap continues to narrow between two of CTV’s most popular shows.

The Big Bang Theory on CTV took the top spot in Canada for the week of Oct. 16 to 22 for the highest AMA of all single-night broadcasts, according to Numeris. Despite landing in the top spot, its average-minute audience fell slightly from the previous week, at 2.94 million down

Its average audience of 2.94 million fell slightly from last week’s 2.96 million.

It was followed by CTV’s new drama The Good Doctor, which has ranked in the top-five since its premiere four weeks ago. Again this week, The Good Doctor grew its average audience slightly to 2.70 million up from 2.68 million. In most markets, The Big Bang Theory was the big winner, but The Good Doctor managed to maintain the top spot in Vancouver/Victoria for the second week in a row.

Filling out the top five nationally were Global’s Survivor with 2.06 million viewers, NCIS with 1.93 million, and Bull, which pulled in 1.72 million viewers.

In the Francophone market, TVA’s reality competition series La voix junior continued to lead the pack for the fifth straight week, falling slightly to 1.90 million from last week’s 1.92 million.
