Big Bang holds the top: Numeris

With Young Sheldon and The Good Doctor also airing new episodes, CTV's big three dominated most markets.

With all of CTV’s “big three” shows once again airing new episodes, Numeris’ top-three shows for the week of Jan. 8 to 14 hold no surprises.

The Big Bang Theory took the top spot once again. With an average audience of 3.78 million viewers, it not only trounced competitors among single-night programs, but also increased its audience from the previous week (3.5 million).

In second place was a new episode of CTV’s The Good Doctor, which had been on a near month-long hiatus. The Good Doctor was followed by Big Bang prequel Young Sheldon. Global hits NCIS and Bull filled out the top-five, earning 2.07 million and 1.92 million viewers respectively (each showing growth over the last week).

Regionally, Big Bang took every Anglophone market, while The Good Doctor and Young Sheldon weren’t too far behind. The only exceptions were in Edmonton, where The Good Doctor failed to crack the top-five, and in Montreal where drama This is Us tied with Young Sheldon.
