Big Bang comes back with a big bang: Numeris

Although Sheldon reigned at the top, hockey played a big part in individual markets.

After taking a back seat to the Grey Cup broadcast, The Big Bang Theory saw the highest AMA of the week for Nov. 27 to Dec. 3.

In fact, Big Bang burst back with a significant gain over its previous broadcast, taking in almost 300,000 more viewers and landing comfortable at 3.47 million viewers.

The next two spots were filled with CTV favourites The Good Doctor (2.93 million viewers) and Young Sheldon (2.64 million).

Global’s Survivor came in fourth with 2.19 million viewers, while once again the new CTV hit The Indian Detective pulled in 1.55 million viewers, rounding out the top five.

Although hockey broadcasts failed to crack the top-five nationally, in markets such as Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Toronto, broadcasts on Sportsnet as well as CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada wound up placing high.

In French Canada, SRC’s Unité 9 enjoyed its second week at the top, growing its audience to 1.79 million viewers.
