Canadian TV Ratings: September 29-October 5, 2014

As expected, most shows saw a drop in viewers from last week, but some drops were more substantial than others.

The Big Bang Theory shed 769,000 viewers from its absolutely huge season premiere. I’m not sure what was to blame for the large drop. Perhaps people were confused with the changing start times for new episodes of The Big Bang Theory (last week it was on at 7 p.m. and last season it was on Thursday nights). It’s also airing out of simulcast on CBS and perhaps more people decided to watch it there instead this week.

Programs like How To Get Away With Murder and NCIS saw smaller drops (179,000 and 115,000 respectively), however, both of those shows remained the top dog for their nights.

While most programs dipped from their premiere, that wasn’t the case for The Amazing Race and Blue Bloods, they gained 134,000 and 197,000 viewers respectively on Friday night.

Elsewhere this week, returning favourites Criminal Minds and Castle did very well with both shows grabbing over three million viewers and nearly overtaking The Big Bang Theory as the week’s most popular program.
