The Good Doctor takes the top: Numeris

The medical drama took in more than three million viewers.
THE GOOD DOCTOR - SEASON 1

After taking a week off last week, CTV’s The Good Doctor came back strong. The medical drama pulled in an AMA of nearly 3.16 million viewers for its March 12 broadcast, making it the highest-viewed single-night program for the week of March 12 to 18.

With both The Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon taking a week off, the top-five was a little less predictable. NCIS, Survivor and Bull (all on Global) took the second, third and fourth spots respectively, while Grey’s Anatomy rounded out the top-five. The season finale of This is Us barely missed the national top-five, although it snuck into the top five of Montreal and Toronto.

While The Good Doctor took the spot in every Anglophone market, some cities still showed unique preferences. CTV dominated the top-five in Montreal, with Law and Order: SVUDeception and The Voice also scoring big. Dramas played big in Edmonton, with Instinct, Chicago P.D. and NCIS: Los Angeles all mingling among the top shows.

In Quebec, the top five remained almost entirely unchanged, the only exception being La vraie nature in the fifth spot, taking the place of L’heure bleue.
