Survivor finale winds up as week’s top show

Winner Sophie Clark with Jeff Probst

It looked like Hockey Night in Canada was the most-watched show in Canada last week–until BBM recalculated Sunday’s Survivor take.
The original overnight, estimated tally for the 8 to 10 p.m. two-hour finale was 2,063,000 Global viewers, the 10 to 11 p.m. reunion show 2,272,000.
Don’t snuff out that tiki torch yet. An NFL football overrun on CBS pushed Survivor back 40 minutes. BBM Canada had to go back and re-calculate the Sunday night ratings based on an 8:40 to 10:40 window.
The new finale total was closer to 2.5 million viewers, which makes it the most-watched show in Canada the week of Dec. 12-18. Global says the finale of the 23rd season of the reality opera came in 12% over the 2010 edition. It also topped Saturday’s Toronto/Vancouver HNiC tally, which was counted at 2,382,000 viewers.
