Big Bang takes the week: Numeris

Sheldon – both the old version and the young version – topped the charts for the week in every market.
Big Bang

The Big Bang Theory shows no signs of slowing down. Its third-to-last episode pulled in even more views than it had the previous week, taking in an AMA of 3.38 million viewers.

That made Big Bang the most-watched of all single-night English-language programs in Canada for the week of April 29 to May 5, according to Numeris.

That was followed by high-performing prequel Young Sheldon on CTV, with 2.27 million viewers. Global stalwart NCIS came in third, with the top-five rounded out by heartfelt ensemble dramas Station 19 and New Amsterdam.

In the Francophone market, competition show La voix stayed in the top spot, but grew its audience past the two million mark for the first time this season. TVA’s Refuge animal climbed up the charts to the number-two spot, from fifth place the previous week.

In Montreal, CTV’s entire primetime Thursday night block occupied the top-five; the lead-in of The Big Bang Theory stayed strong and carried into second-place finisher Young Sheldon, followed by Station 19 and Law and Order: SVU. Fifth place was another CTV series, Wednesday night’s Grey’s Anatomy.
