The Big Bang Theory is back, and it’s back with a big bang.

After a week off the air, the CTV comedy took in an average of 3.24 million viewers, making it the most-watched single-night program for the week of March 26 to April 1.

But could Big Bang have some competition? Third-place finisher Roseanne, the rebooted 90′s classic, brought in 2.83 million viewers for its first episode. Roseanne also trumped Big Bang in Montreal and Vancouver.

Filling the gap in the national top-five between Big Bang and Roseanne was The Good Doctor, which maintained strong viewership at 3.17 million viewers. Rounding out the top-five were regular favourites Young Sheldon (2.64 million viewers) and Survivor (2.08 million viewers).

La voix continued to dominate the Francophone market, although its viewership dropped to 1.87 million viewers. Meanwhile, Unité 9 made gains and rose to 1.63 million viewers, closing in on the reality show juggernaut.
