Canadian TV Ratings: April 13-19, 2015

The Stanley Cup Playoffs started on Apr. 15 and bombarded the charts below. However, if you’re trying to figure out how each game did, you’re out of luck. Well, that’s probably the case with the information I have below at least.

For Numeris’ Top Programs chart, they cobbled all the games that started at a similar time as one program. So the “NHL Playoffs Round 1” only made it onto their chart twice for the week of Apr. 13. The games that started around 7:07 p.m. EDT were considered the week’s third most-watched program, while the games that started at 10:07 p.m. EDT were considered the week’s eighth most-watched program. Weird, I know.

I’m not too sure why Numeris decided to group them altogether. I think it might be because the NHL Playoffs might have taken around nine of the top 30 slots if they counted them individually.

Well, despite what they did, The Big Bang Theory still easily came out on top for the week with over 3.5 million viewers. Some things never change.

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