Canadian TV Ratings and Recaps – November 9-15/15

Put another blog on the fire!  Numeris has released the Canadian TV ratings for Week 11 of the 2015/16 season, so let’s have a look at the top five shows for November 9-15/15!  To see the entire Top 30 list, click here!

#1 – “The Big Bang Theory” Season 9 – Episode #8 (“The Mystery Date Observation”) – CTV/CBS – Thursday 8:00 pm to 8:31 pm – 3.926 million viewers

Sheldon Cooper was on the prowl online for a new girlfriend, and Canadians tuned in for the results.  The show shed 196,000 viewers from last week, but no other show had anywhere near this audience.

In the United States, this show rated #4 in the Overall chart, and on the 18-49 demo listing it tied for #4 with “Football Night in America – Pt. 3”.


#2 – “NCIS” Season 13 – Episode #8 (“Saviors”) – Global/CBS – Tuesday 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm – 2.596 million viewers

Global has three of the top 5 shows this week….ooops!  SPOILER ALERT!…and “NCIS” continues to be their top ratings-getter.  The show lost 205,000 viewers from last week.

In the States, “NCIS” was #3 overall, beat only by “Sunday Night Football” and “60 Minutes”.  In the 18-49 demo the show was #11.


#3 – “NCIS: New Orleans” Season 2 – Episode #8 (“Confluence”) – Global/CBS – Tuesday 9:00 pm to 10:00 pm – 2.332 million viewers

Shalita Grant as Sonja Percy and Scott Bakula as Dwayne Pride

Rock-solid ratings rise this show to #3, with only a 22,000-viewer loss from last week.

In the States, “NCIS: NO” was #7 overall, but was unable to crack the 18-49 demo Top 25.


#4 – “Survivor: Cambodia” Season 31 – Episode #8 (“You Call, We’ll Haul”) – Global/CBS – Wednesday 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm – 2.224 million viewers

It was a spectacular Tribal Council.  Kelley Wentworth figured she was the target and played her hidden immunity idol she found several episodes ago, and her instincts paid off.  All nine votes against her were declared void, and Andrew Savage saw his ‘second chance’ game end.  Abi rightly pointed out to him that at least he “made the jury”, to which he responded by flipping her the bird.  Ratings gold.  204,000 viewers saw their torches snuffed from last week’s viewing audience, causing “Survivor” to slip to #4.

In the States, “Survivor” was #16 overall and tied for #15 in the 18-49 demo with “The Goldbergs”.


#5 – “Criminal Minds” Season 11 – Episode #7 (“Target Rich”) – CTV/CBS – Wednesday 9:00 pm to 10:00 pm – 2.164 million viewers

'Target Rich'

The gain from last week was 11,000 viewers, but that was enough to put “Criminal Minds” back into the Top 5.  CTV has nothing to complain about, though, as they were the Canadian keepers of the #5-to-#12 shows: “Criminal Minds”, “The Flash”, “Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”, “Castle”, “Quantico”, “Code Black”, “Gotham”, and “How To Get Away With Murder”.

In the States, “Criminal Minds” was #19 overall but didn’t make the 18-49 demo Top 25 chart.


Here’s the Top 5 in the States, using the “Overall” numbers and including the cable figures:

  1. “Sunday Night Football” – NBC – 19,388,000 viewers
  2. “60 Minutes” – CBS – 18,132,000 viewers
  3. “NCIS” – CBS – 16,678,000 viewers
  4. “The Big Bang Theory” – CBS – 14,915,000 viewers
  5. “Sunday Night NFL Pre-Kick” – NBC – 13,941,000 viewers


That’s it for this week!  Be sure to bookmark this blog and be back next Wednesday to see if what we watched was what you watched!  Assuming you’re not Canadian.  If you are, that sentence then made no sense.  I need sleep.
