Global’s long-running procedural NCIS nabbed the biggest average audience of all single-night programs in Canada for the week of Feb. 11 to 17.

The drama was watched by an average of 2.29 million viewers during its Feb. 12 broadcast. The usual chart toppers, Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon and The Good Doctor were off for the week, leaving NCIS to rocket to the top of the charts. Shortly behind was another Global procedural, New Amsterdam. That was followed by a trio of cop shows: CTV’s The Rookie, Global’s FBI and CTV’s Blue Bloods.

Regionally, most markets were more mixed. While Toronto favoured NCIS, Montreal had its tissues out for This Is Us. Edmonton was all about Oilers content, with three games in its top-five. Vancouver and Calgary opted for medical drama New Amsterdam, and the Quebec market once again tuned in to La voix.
