As it neared its finish, the May 9 episode of The Big Bang Theory drew more than 3.8 million viewers, remaining at the top of the Numeris charts, for the week ending May 12.

The CTV comedy was the most-watched show in all but the Francophone market, followed closely by its spinoff, Young Sheldon which raked in 2.43 million viewers. Preliminary results for last week’s airing already indicate that The Big Bang Theory drove north of four million average views for its finale; next week’s Numeris results will contain the full same-day-plus-seven results.

Rounding out the top-five this week were Global’s unscripted reality series Survivor, the long-running NCIS and hospital drama, New Amsterdam.

In the Francophone market Artis, le gala, the annual awards ceremony honouring stars of the small screen saw 1.84 million viewers tune in, with Artis, le tapis rouge, the red carpet pre-show following close behind with 1.35 million viewers. Game show La poule aux oeufs d’or took the third spot with 840,000 viewers.

In the Toronto market, Raptors fever brought in 624,000 viewers for NBA Playoffs as the team took on the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 6 of the conference semifinals.
