Canadian TV Ratings: April 28-May 4, 2014

CTV has to be happy with MasterChef Canada‘s ratings (logo via CTV.ca)

If you’ve been following along over the past few weeks, you may remember that BBM decided to treat CBC’s NHL playoffs coverage as a single show. That hasn’t changed for this week. So if you want to know how each game did ratings wise, you might want to check out the overnights over on the Sports section of the site. Just remember that the ratings for all programs (like the ratings on this page) are the final ratings, which include those who recorded and watched shows with a PVR, while the sports ratings are simply the overnight ratings.

Anyway, MasterChef Canada jumped by nearly 300,000 from last week to take the top spot on Monday, while The Blacklist dropped by nearly the same amount to arrive at 1,832,000 viewers for Monday’s broadcast and third spot for the night.

NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles are back on the chart this week and despite the added competition, SHIELD actually grew from last week’s viewership of 2,338,000 to 2,409,000 this week.

CSI was also back and took the top spot for Wednesday night bumping Survivor to second spot for Wednesday.

While The Big Bang Theory and Grey’s picked up viewers from last week, Two and a Half Men dropped 150,000 viewers week-to-week and that was enough for it to drop out of the top five shows for Thursday night.

On Sunday, The Mentalist saw a small rise in viewership of 10,000 while The Amazing Race saw a larger one with 110,000 more tuning in compared to last week’s broadcast.

You’ll find BBM’s full top-30 list at the source link below. You may notice that not a single City show made the list.

The times listed above are for the Eastern Standard Time Zone.
