Big Bang double header takes the top: Numeris

Young Sheldon also came back with a (smaller) bang to knock The Good Doctor out of second place.

It should come as no surprise that The Big Bang Theory topped the Numeris charts for yet another week. The comedy on CTV not only pulled in the highest average minute audience for all single-night programs of the week of Oct. 30 to Nov. 5 (undefeated since its Season 11 premiere in September), it made major gains over the previous week. Approximately 3.5 million Canadians tuned in to the program.

But its prequel, Young Sheldon, was not far behind. The series, which immediately follows Big Bang on Thursdays, pulled in an AMA of 2.92 million for the week. Its premiere in September pulled off similar numbers, but the show’s official season kicked off Nov. 2.

It pulled in enough of an audience to kick The Good Doctor out of its familiar second-place spot, although the medical drama still pulled in 2.6 million viewers, down just slightly from the 2.75 million it earned the previous week.

The top five was rounded by two Global shows, NCIS and Survivor with 2.07 million and 2.02 million viewers respectively.

Big Bang, Young Sheldon and The Good Doctor remained closely placed across all the country, although the Big Bang itself took the top spot in all Anglophone markets. It even took Vancouver, where The Good Doctor had reigned #1 for the last two weeks.

In the Francophone market, TVA’s reality competition series La voix junior continued to lead the pack for the seventh straight week, however it pulled in slightly fewer viewers than its previous broadcast, with 1.72 million.
