Canadian TV Ratings: November 9-15, 2015

I’m not sure what happened over the week of November 9, but a bunch of the nation’s top shows plummeted. When compared to their broadcasts for the week prior, The Big Bang Theory, NCIS, Survivor and Quantico shed roughly 200,000 viewers. Grey’s managed to shed nearly 225,000 viewers, and Blue Bloods, Supergirl and Limitless saw smaller hits as they lost roughly 125,000.

Surprisingly, How to Get Away with Murder was one of the few shows that gained viewers. It went from 1,508,000 for its November 5 episode to 1,774,000 for its November 12 episode. That episode wasn’t even the show’s midseason finale. [Don’t get me started on what a ridiculous concept a “midseason finale” is.] How to Get Away with Murder’s midseason finale aired the following week on November 19, and we should get those final numbers next week.

Regardless, it’s still a bit odd to see a show like How to Get Away with Murder spike like that. It has always been the type of program that I thought you’d have to watch every week or else you might feel lost. How to Get Away with Murder feels like it’s so fragile that if they make one bad move when it comes to the plot, the entire show would fall apart like a house of cards.

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