The Good Doctor back on top: Numeris

It was a big week for dramas, which took over much of the top five.
THE GOOD DOCTOR - SEASON 2

A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that The Good Doctor garnered 1.09 million views in the Montreal (Anglophone) market and that New Amsterdam aired on CTV. MiC regrets the error. 

The Good Doctor took the lead on Canadian television on its first week back.

The medical drama, which returned to the airwaves Sept. 24, saw an average of nearly three million viewers for its season premiere on CTV. The series is no stranger to the top spot, garnering millions of views last season.

The week of Sept. 24 to 30 was a big week for dramas overall, with new shows FBI and New Amsterdam taking the #2 and #3 spot, last week’s champ 9-1-1 dropping to #4 and Survivor – all on Global – rounding out the top five.

It is worth noting that The Big Bang Theory pulled in a higher AMA than The Good Doctor, with an average of 3.49 million viewers per minute. However, Big Bang, which had two episodes broadcast this week, was programmed as a multi-night program and thus not counted among MiC‘s top five. Young Sheldon also grabbed an AMA of 2.49 million over two nights.

In the Quebec market, Unité 9 stayed at number one for the third week running, followed by Révolution, which held onto the #2 spot for a second week.
