The new fall TV season is almost over and The Big Bang Theory is Canada's most-watched TV show for the fifth year running.
Canadian nerd herds followed the CBS comedy to Monday nights on the top-rated CTV network before The Big Bang Theory roared back to Thursdays at 8 p.m. and delivered 4.4 million total viewers Oct. 30 and Nov. 6, according to Numeris data.
The Chuck Lorre sitcom season-to-date has drawn 3.49 million average Canadian viewers to remain the country's top-rated TV show. As Canadians decide on their favorite series, CBS' Criminal Minds on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on CTV has drawn an average 2.72 million viewers season-to-date.
And as the dust settles on Fox's Gotham on Monday nights, a strong lead-in from The Big Bang Theory helped the Batman-themed prequel to build an average 2.71 million viewers for CTV — it emerged as the third most-watched show overall in Canada and the country's top-rated new series.
CW's The Flash has drawn 2.69 million average viewers to become the second most-watched Canadian show on CTV. And strong tune-in for ABC's How to Get Away With Murder snagged an average 2.4 million viewers for CTV, making it the third most-watched new show, according to Numeris.
