Canadian TV Ratings: May 12-18, 2014

CBC’s hockey broadcasts made a dent in the ratings list this week (logo via Wikimedia)

We’re finally seeing the power of the NHL playoffs on the regular old ratings chart. The CBC broadcasts of the second round of the NHL playoffs from Monday through Wednesday took second place on the weekly top-30 chart. When cobbled all together they had 3,455,000 viewers.

Global’s 24: Live Another Day dropped from Monday’s list of the day’s top five shows. It would’ve been the day’s sixth most watched show with 1,365,000 tuning in. That’s a good drop from the 1,859,000 it pulled in for its first hour and 1,696,000 it pulled in for its second hour last week. I’m betting Global is hoping those numbers will stop sinking.

SHIELDNCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles all saw decent gains over last week’s broadcasts, while Person of Interest saw only 17,000 fewer people watching than last week.

The Big Bang Theory gained a million viewers from last week to have a total of 4,303,000 viewers. Despite that Two and a Half Men’s ratings dropped. Only 1,413,000 watched this week compared to last week’s viewership of 1,621,000.

The Amazing Race was bumped out of its usual spot on Sunday again this week, this time for The Billboard Music Awards. While more people were able to find The Amazing Race on a bit earlier on CTV, fewer people tuned into The Billboard Music Awards than Once Upon a Time last week. That has to be a bit of a disappointment for CTV.
