As a number of the country’s top shows disappeared from Numeris’ Top Programs chart for the week, we were left with a bunch of middling “hits” taking up the chart. Only two programs, The Big Bang Theory and Survivor, managed to attract over two million viewers.
Putting the missing hits aside, this is one of the weeks that you can really spot how dominant CTV is. The network held 13 out of the top 15 programs. Only Global’s Hawaii Five-O and Survivor managed to crack the top 15.
They’re both CBS imports as well. Actually, Global relies heavily on CBS. All but one of their programs that made the Top Programs chart for the week was a CBS program or a Canadian version of a CBS program. That lone non-CBS show was Shades of Blue from NBC. This week didn’t even have NCIS and its spinoffs, The Good Wife, Madam Secretary or Supergirl on the chart either.
The CBS magic has also helped some of the other broadcasters, too. The Big Bang Theory, Canada’s favourite show by far, airs on CTV and CBS. Other major CBS/CTV shows, include Criminal Minds, CSI: Cyber and Blue Bloods.
Over on City, the only thing that kinda, sorta qualifies as a hit is Scorpion, which again is a CBS import.
