Canadian TV Ratings: November 24-30, 2014

TSN’s CFL Grey Cup coverage ruled the airwaves. It managed to top everything on television for the week, including The Big Bang Theory, with 3,832,000 tuning inWell, I suppose it helped that The Big Bang Theory was a rerun on Thursday night. Despite airing a rerun, the CTV laugher still managed to pull in an astounding 2,721,000. While that would be out of the ordinary for an original Big Bang episode, very few scripted programs regularly come anywhere near having an audience of that size with a new episode, let alone a rerun. 

Outside of the Grey Cup and The Big Bang Theory, many of the top programs that charted on Monday and Tuesday dropped from last week. I’m specifically talking about Castle, Gotham, NCIS and The Flash; however, Criminal MindsSurvivor: San Juan and Hockey Night in Canada had better luck later in the week and managed to rise from last week.

To see how they did and how some of the country’s other top programs performed, check out the charts below and Numeris at the source link.
