After Oscar week, CTV’s The Rookie returned to the top spot across the country, followed by a strong showing by The Good Doctor, according to the latest numbers from Numeris for the week of Apr. 26 to May 2.

9-1-1 was the lone Global competitor in the top five at the national level with 1.81 million viewers, with a spate of CTV programming also including Blue Bloods and Young Sheldon.

As the season draws to a close, NHL hockey is also continuing to prove popular, with Leafs games – against the Canucks on TSN and the Canadiens on Sportsnet – taking the top two spots in Toronto’s TV rankings, and Hockey Night in Canada‘s Oilers vs. Flames feature in first in Edmonton.

The season finale of Star académie on TVA dominated Francophone viewing with an AMA of 1.61 million, where the show crowned candidate William Cloutier as the grand prize winner. The rest of the province’s French-TV rankings were consistent with the previous week.

Police procedurals were prominent throughout the rest of the country’s rankings, with Global’s 9-1-1 and The Equalizer, and CTV’s 9-1-1 joining The Rookie and The Good Doctor in most markets.
