Canadian TV Ratings: September 7-13, 2015

Judging from the ratings for the week of September 7, it looks like Canada still has baseball fever. Actually, Canada’s so into baseball that the Sportsnet Central that aired during the evening of Saturday, September 12 was the 11th most-watched program of the week. That’s a bit crazy.

The week’s Blue Jays baseball games, cobbled together using whatever strange math Numeris uses, pulled in 1,535,000 viewers, too. That’s down a tad from the previous week, however, where Numeris listed that week’s Jays games as pulling in 1,633,000 viewers. Numeris also listed the Jays games for the week of September 7 as airing at 1:04-4:24 p.m., which is nonsense because their Top Programs chart also says that eight games aired during the week. I’m assuming they meant that most of the Jays games for the week aired in the afternoon around 1-ish.

If that’s true, that may give reason to why some of the week’s other broadcasts jumped a bit in the ratings when compared to the previous week. The Amazing Race Canada went up to 2,769,000 from 2,522,000 for its broadcast the week before. MasterChef went from 1,924,000 for its September 2 broadcast to 2,013,000 for its episode on September 9. America’s Got Talent and Thursday’s prime-time Big Bang Theory rerun also saw some gains as well.

Because Numeris decided to count all the Jays games as one program, it’s hard to say which shows were directly affected by the Jays. I came across the preliminary ratings for sporting events that aired over the September 11-13 weekend, and I know that the Jays had a doubleheader on the 12, which might explain why Sportsnet Central charted below.

Anyway, check out the charts below and visit Numeris for more info on the week’s top programs.
