Canadian TV Ratings: May 26-June 1, 2014

You may have noticed a few changes with the ratings this week. I’ve decided to cover the top three shows for the day instead of the top five as I did before. I’m testing out a few new things on the blog this week (as I mentioned earlier) and there’s a new feature coming along. Keep your eyes peeled.

MasterChef hasn’t pulled in as many viewers as the MasterChef Canada season finale, but the 1,896,000 it grabbed was enough for the show to take the top spot for Monday night. Despite shedding 289,000 viewers from last week, Rookie Blue was able to move up a spot and take second place for the night.

City managed to get one of its shows in the top-five shows of the week, which is miraculous, as the network often struggles to even get one show in the top-30, let alone the top-five.

Other shows that were not a CTV News broadcast or hockey that managed to crack the top-three shows for the night for their respective night were So You Think You Can Dance on Wednesday, the Big Bang Theory on Thursday and Believe on Sunday night.

While some things have changed, some have stayed the same. The full top-30 list is at the source link below. Points of Interest this week include that the Big Bang Theory made the chart three times, once for its usual Thursday night broadcast, once for the syndicated run in the evening on CTV and another for its broadcast on Friday and Sunday morning starting at 12:05 in the morning. You’re obsessed Canada, go get some help.
