The Big Bang Theory was at its usual spot on top of Canadian TV ratings, according to the latest Numeris charts.

The report, which covers Jan. 14 to Jan. 20, shows that the CTV comedy generated the highest average minute audience (2+) of all single-night programs in Canada. It pulled in an average of 3.43 million viewers, keeping up its strong streak all season. Coming in second place was The Good Doctor, which has been inching closer to three million viewers with each week.

Rounding out the top-five nationally were Young Sheldon, the NFL Playoffs and New Amsterdam.

Although Big Bang took the national crown, regional champs varied. More Montrealers tuned into The Good Doctor, while Vancouverites tuned into football with more enthusiasm. In Quebec, Unité 9 on SRC took the spot with an average of 1.35 million viewers.
