NCIS wins the week: Numeris

Drama, both scripted and unscripted, ruled the top-five this week.

Global’s long-running procedural drama NCIS proved to be the most popular among Canadian viewers for the most recent Numeris report.

The report, which covers the week of April 8 to 15, put NCIS at the top of the ratings heap, with an AMA of 2.17 million, beating out all other single-night programs.

With comedy powerhouses The Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon on the shelf for a week, both scripted and real-life drama ruled the roost for Canadians. NCIS was followed by Global’s first-season hit New Amsterdam, while long-running reality juggernaut Survivor was just behind.

The week was rounded out by two CTV cop shows, one new and one more established. The Rookie, fronted by Nathan Fillion, came in fourth, while Blue Bloods came in fifth.

Regionally, each market alternated for its top pick, with only Survivor topping more than one market (Toronto and Vancouver). Edmonton preferred The Rookie, while Calgary went for New Amsterdam, and Grey’s Anatomy topped Montreal.

No surprises in the Francophone market, where reality competition show La voix once again took the top spot.
