The Good Doctor’s good week: Numeris

City's Grammy broadcast performed well in most markets, but CTV's medical prodigy takes the top.
THE GOOD DOCTOR - SEASON 1

City’s broadcast of the 60th Grammy Awards Sunday night performed well across all English-speaking markets the week it aired, but could not topple CTV’s The Good Doctor (pictured) from the top national spot in Numeris’s weekly TV rankings for all single-night programs.

During the week of Jan. 22 to 28 (when usual prime time front-runner The Big Bang Theory did not air a new episode), The Good Doctor led in Montreal (among Anglophone viewers), Edmonton and Calgary and fell second in Toronto/Hamilton to take the top national ranking with 3.08 million viewers, while the Grammys took second at 2.13 million viewers. Usual ratings powerhouses such as Bull and the NCIS franchises continued to win big audiences for Global on Tuesday nights to round out the national top five.

Among Quebec’s French-language viewers, Unité 9 returned to the top spot while last week’s audience winner, Face Au Mur, slipped to fourth place.

Of note was CBC’s NHL All-Star Skills, which ranked third in Edmonton with 77,000 viewers (the program garnered 1.42 million viewers nationally, ranking 10th among single-night broadcasts).
