Well, that was no Newhart. Neither, however, was it a Seinfeld. The hour-long series finale of The Big Bang Theory was simply two more episodes that will run forever in syndication and not stand out from any that went before them — which is exactly the way executive producer Chuck Lorre must have wanted it.

In Canada, CTV had such little faith in it they originally booted it over
This Thursday is the series finale of Canada’s most-watched TV show for nearly a decade — The Big Bang Theory. Brioux.TV takes a look back at set visits and cast interviews over the past dozen years.

In the most recent available national total ratings tally from Numeris (the week of April 23-29), the CBS sitcom was the No. 1 show in English Canada with 3,221,000 CTV viewers.
The 2018 winter TCA press tour is coming to a sleepy end this week. PBS shuts things down with a panel featuring Bill Nye the Science Guy on Wednesday.
