The Good Doctor makes good: Numeris

The drama managed to garner a higher national AMA than Saturday and Sunday's Olympic broadcasts.
THE GOOD DOCTOR - SEASON 1

With the Olympic broadcast schedule causing Canada’s main broadcast networks to make some changes, the Numeris rankings of the country’s top programs shifted as well.

On top of the charts for the week of Feb. 5 to 11 was CTV’s medical drama The Good Doctor, with 2.82 million viewers. With Thursday night powerhouses The Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon not airing any new episodes, The Good Doctor slid comfortably into the top spot of all single-night programs, with a significant lead over second-place finisher NCIS (2.05 million viewers).

Because the Olympics are programmed as multi-day programming, the PyeongChang 2018 Primetime broadcast is not included in MiC‘s top-five, which tracks only single-night programs. However, the average minute audience for the Saturday and Sunday combine broadcasts of the Olympics (2.34 million) did not exceed that of The Good Doctor.

Following NCIS was Bull, which aired directly after NCIS on Global. The drama pulled in just under two million. Rounding out the top-five were CTV drama This is Us and Global’s NCIS: New Orleans.

Olympic broadcasts still dominated many of the markets; however, of all single-night programs, The Good Doctor had a stronghold on most of the major Anglophone cities. A notable exception was Edmonton, which rallied around the finale for Star Trek: Discovery on Space.
