Canadian TV Ratings: March 3 – March 9, 2014

Pretty much everything is in line with last week, but there are a few insignificant drops and rises from week to week. The Blacklist found 162,000 additional pairs of eyeballs, Masterchef Canada saw 235,000 more viewers, NCIS added nearly 200,000, but NCIS: Los Angeles actually saw 12,000 fewer viewers, and Criminal Minds shed nearly 80,000 to tie with The Amazing Race for third place for the week with 2,407,000 watching.

Things got interesting on Thursday night though. CTV saw over 200,000 more viewers with Big Bang Theory from week to week at 8 PM with 4,035,000 tuning in, but at 8:30 CTV fell off the map — it’s nowhere to be found in the top-30 until 9 PM. At 9 CTV had 2,260,000 viewers for Grey’s Anatomy, a drop of 236,000 viewers from last week.

So, what happened at 8:30? Spun Out happened. CTV said that it pulled in 1.22 million viewers on March 7th using preliminary ratings, but the show doesn’t appear on the BBM’s top-30 chart. The syndicated run of Big Bang Theory took the 30th spot with 1,239,000 viewers so that must mean either no one bothered to PVR the show or CTV lied about (or was misinformed about) Spun Out’s numbers.

Keep in mind the preliminaries typically see a rather notable uptick in numbers. For example, The Big Bang Theory had 3.3 million viewers in the preliminary numbers CTV had on the 7th, and it gained 700,000 in the numbers BBM released today. Grey’s had 1.8 million in the preliminary ratings, that’s 460,000 shy of what it has on the top-30 chart.

So that means if the 1.22 million viewers was accurate, Spun Out should be well up there on the top-30 chart. In either case though, Spun Out shouldn’t feel too bad about its ratings. Motive lost just over half of its lead in only getting 1,242,000 viewers, and it’s a relatively established show that also airs on US network TV.

On the upside this week, CBC is doing nicely with Murdoch Mysteries pulling in a respectable 1,384,000 on Monday and City snagged a smash hit with 1,513,000 tuning in for Resurrection. It’s actually City’s top show now. Let’s hope for their sake that these numbers hold.
