Canadian TV Ratings: April 27-May 3, 2015

With the exception of hockey sneaking its way in on random days, most of the charts below probably look a lot like what you’ve come to expect: a bunch of police procedurals, The Big Bang Theory and one or two reality shows thrown in for good measure, but a closer look shows a few interesting things.

While The Big Bang Theory was the week’s most-watched show by a good margin as per usual, it shed over 600,000 viewers from the week before. CSI: Cyber continued its slow descent downwards by drawing only 1,939,000 viewers for its Apr. 29 broadcast, down a tad from both of the episodes that aired the week before. Gotham didn’t make Monday’s chart below because of hockey, but it drew less than 1.6 million viewers. That’s a sharp decline from the nearly 3.4 million who tuned into the series premiere earlier this season. I’m not sure if it’s any consolation, but Gotham probably can’t sink much further considering that the TV season is coming to an end.
