Canadians clearly love The Big Bang Theory, which attracted more than 3.2 million viewers to become last week’s No. 1 show. This was head and shoulders above the No. 2 show, The Amazing Race, with a total Canadian audience of 2.6 million.
Rounding up the top 10, in descending order, were Grey’s Anatomy, NCIS: Los Angeles, Survivor: One World, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, The Mentalist, American Idol’s Wednesday-night performance episode, Hawaii Five-0 and House.
Other shows that performed well last week included Bones (No. 11), fairytale drama Once Upon a Time (No. 14) and the Ashley Judd spy thriller Missing (No. 15).
The bloom certainly seems to be off the rose when it comes to Dancing With the Stars, however, which is no longer the ratings powerhouse that it used to be; the Monday-night performance episode was ranked No. 21, while the Tuesday results show came in at No. 25.
