Canadian TV Ratings: March 16-22, 2015

I bet you didn’t see this one coming: CSI: Cyber was the number one show of the week. Surprisingly, the latest spinoff of the tired CSI held enough of its audience to edge out the aging Survivor for the top spot. Although it was the most-watched program of the week, CSI: Cyber was down from the previous week’s episode.
CSI: Cyber was probably able to take the top spot in part because CTV swapped Grey’s Anatomy into The Big Bang Theory’s usual Thursday night time-slot. Grey’s Anatomy was the week’s sixth most-watched show with just over two million viewers. It likely didn’t hurt that NCIS (and its spinoffs) didn’t show up on this week’s Numeris Top Programs chart either. 
Actually, many other CBS imports (like The Amazing Race and Hawaii Five-O) weren’t there as well. That seemed to help the CBC too as Murdoch Mysteries, The Rick Mercer Report, Marketplace, Dragons’ Den and Heartland all made Numeris’ chart for the week, but they didn’t make it onto any of the charts below.
