The Big Bang Theory continued to lead the week for television ratings. CTV’s comedy, which has been untouchable in the number-one spot since its eleventh season premiered in October, pulled off an AMA of 3.24 million viewers for the week of Nov. 13 to 19, beating out all single-night programs in the country.

Its spinoff Young Sheldon, which for two weeks came in just behind its predecessor, moved to the third spot this week, with medical drama The Good Doctor taking back the second spot. The Good Doctor had been knocked into third place with Young Sheldon returned to the airwaves in early November, and then saw a week off the charts after not airing an episode on Nov. 6.

Once again, Global rounded out the top five, with NCIS and Survivor maintaining ratings in the low-two million range.

In terms of special event programming, the American Music Awards pulled off 1.86 million average viewers, coming in seventh in the nation. The event saw a slight lift in its AMA from last year, which was 1.54 million. It also landed in the top-five in both the Montreal and Toronto markets.

In the Francophone market, reality competition series La voix junior experienced its ninth straight week in the number-one slot (2.07 million viewers, up from last week’s 1.9 million).
