Canadian TV Ratings: December 29, 2014-January 4, 2015

The week of Dec. 29 was a bit of a mixed bag. The bad news was that there wasn’t much on TV prior to ringing in the new year. The World Juniors preliminaries topped the charts on both Monday and Wednesday. City’s simulcast of ABC’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve beat out Global’s ET Canada’s New Year’s Eve at Niagara Falls, although just by a hair. Air Farce’s annual New Year’s Eve special did well and attracted 1,172,000 viewers. It was the CBC’s second most-watched program for the week right behind Hockey Night in Canada.

Once we did make it to 2015, however, a bunch of imports from CBS started popping up on the charts. The Mentalist, Blue Bloods, Hawaii Five-O, CSI, Madam Secretary and The Big Bang Theory all made it onto the charts below, but none of them were a match for the World Juniors playoff games, which easily took the week with well over three million viewers.
