Canadian TV Ratings: December 30, 2013 – January 5, 2014

The Big Bang Theory topped this week with an astonishing 4,168,000. A special New Year’s Day Hockey Night in Canada helped the CBC the ratings Tuesday despite being aired in the afternoon on the east coast. While The Mentalist’s looking at a possible cancellation in the US, the show still shows signs of life up here. On Sunday of this week it pulled in 2.3 million to make it the third watched show of the week. On New Year’s Eve, it looks as though picking up Dick Clark’s New Years Rocking Eve didn’t help much for City, it came in below CBC’s Air Farce and Global’s ET Canada specials and was the fifth watched show of the night.
