Canadian TV Ratings: April 14-April 20, 2014

It’s easy to lose track of all the Hockey Night in Canada broadcasts this week (logo via WikiMedia)

BBM decided to treat CBC’s NHL playoffs coverage as a single show for some reason so this week’s top-30 broadcasts won’t give you an understanding of how each game did ratings wise. However, for what it’s worth, the games starting at around 7 in the evening from Wednesday through Sunday night ranked in 10th place for the week with 1,799,000, while the games on Thursday and Saturday starting around 10 PM took 25th place for the week with 1,084,000.

MasterChef CanadaBones, the CTV Evening News, the CTV National NewsSurvivor and Believe all held relatively the same viewers from last week seeing negligible rises or gains.

The Big Bang Theory lost nearly two million viewers week to week and a special broadcast of The Big Bang Theory at 8:30 brought in more viewers than it did in its regular spot, with 1,655,000 watching The Big Bang Theory at 8 PM and 1,819,000 at 8:30 PM.

Elsewhere, on Tuesday night, NCIS saw a jump of over 140,000 viewers, while NCIS: Los Angeles shed 77,000.

For BBM’s full top-30 list, check out the source link below. Making a surprise appearance is Global’s original series Remedy with 1,061,000 tuning in for 26th spot for the week. I believe that’s Remedy’s first appearance on the top-30 chart, which is great news. I reviewed the pilot a few weeks back and I really liked it.
