Big Bang stays on top: Numeris

The MLS cup was no match for the Big Bang gang.
Big Bang

The MLS cup may have brought the ratings for TSN, but it was no match for The Big Bang Theory for the highest AMA. CTV’s comedy series easily swept the week of Dec. 4 to 10, pulling in just over three million viewers.

It was followed by fall favourites The Good Doctor, Young Sheldon and Survivor, which all posted slight drops in their audiences over the previous week. The top five was rounded out by CTV’s Designated Survivor (which up until this most recent week, has been absent from Numeris’ top-five lists so far this season). This was the action-drama’s first crack at the top-five all season.

The MLS cup may have only placed 13th in the country, but it managed to take the top spot in Toronto. Most other Anglophone markets were topped by Sheldon and the gang from Big Bang, although The Good Doctor once again took the top spot in Vancouver.

In the Quebec Francophone market, an entirely new top-five was ushered in, with SRC taking most of the spots (including Gala Les Olivier 2017 in the top spot).
