Canadian TV Ratings: May 18-24, 2015

While the previous two weeks saw a ton of shows call it quits for the season, one biggie still remained for the week of May 18: Survivor wrapped up its 30th season on May 20. Strangely enough, however, the reunion special topped the actual finale (although that was only by 1,000 viewers). The Survivor reunion special was the week’s most-watched show while the finale itself had to settle for second place.

Elsewhere, MasterChef Canada’s finale spiked from the previous week’s broadcast to become Sunday’s most-watched show and the week’s fourth most-watched show on a whole. Just over two million viewers tuned in to see David Jorge win the second season of MasterChef Canada.

MasterChef Canada wasn’t the only Canadian show tearing things up in the ratings, however. Rookie Blue was the most-watched show on May 21, topping a rerun of juggernaut The Big Bang Theory. In fact, many other Canadian shows made Numeris’ Top Programs chart. Outside of hockey and CTV News broadcasts, Motive, Border Security: Canada’s Front Line and three Big Brother Canada episodes made the Numeris’ chart.

City also had a good week with 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, Modern Family and two separate Hell’s Kitchen episodes making Numeris’ Top Programs chart as well.
