Canadian TV Ratings: October 12-18, 2015

While last week I was a bit surprised by Blindspot’s numbers, the show managed to crash and burn on October 12. When compared to the episode that aired the week before, the new CTV drama lost 438,000 viewers. That’s a pretty steep drop from the fifth most-watched program for the week of October 5 to the 13th. Blindspot is not the only newbie show feeling the heat; Limitless and Code Black both lost viewers, too.

The only other new program that managed to crack the top 30 actually did far better. Quantico spiked up from a low last week, and that’s probably because it didn’t have to face competition from The Walking Dead for its October 18 episode. CTV’s new CIA drama gained nearly 275,000 viewers from its October 11 broadcast to sit comfortably ahead of the night’s other scripted network shows in the ratings.

You may notice that the charts below are littered with a bunch of baseball-related programs. Take those numbers with a grain of salt because Numeris decided to count several different MLB games or post-game shows for those numbers. Because of that, it’s hard to know exactly which programs may have been banged up in the ratings due to baseball. 

Anyway, for more on the week’s top shows, check out my charts below and Numeris at the source link.
