Canadian TV Ratings: September 28-October 4, 2015

While Global can boast that NCIS was the most-watched program for the week of September 28, some of their newbie shows aren’t holding up that well. After premiering to 2,237,000 viewers, Limitless sank down to an audience of only 1,786,000. Heroes Reborn saw a similar drop with nearly 450,000 viewers not bothering to stick around for episode two. Minority Report was the 30th most-watched show for the week of September 22, so unsurprisingly it didn’t make Numeris’ Top Programs chart for the week of September 28.

In contrast, CTV’s Quantico held up very well in its second week. It was actually the second most-watched program of the week right behind Global’s NCIS. The Big Bang Theory had to settle for third place for the week with 2,429,000 viewers. How the mighty have fallen. As I said last week, The Big Bang Theory numbers may be down because more people decided to wait for the CBS broadcast or they got a severe case of Blue Jays fever. (The only prescription is more Blue Jays.)

Elsewhere, people were much more receptive to Code Black than I thought. From what I’ve seen of the series through promos and trailers, it looked quite generic, and I thought it would flatline immediately. The premiere did okay, though. It was just short of nabbing two million viewers. How many people will stick around for the full season is anyone’s guess.

Anyway, check out how some of the week’s other top shows did by skimming my charts below or visiting Numeris at the source link.
