Dance Canada goes out with a bang

The big numbers from So You Think You Can Dance Canada got even higher Sunday.

So You Think You Can Dance Canada topped its impressive rating performance on Sunday as Montreal’s Nico Archambault was crowned the winner of CTV’s latest homegrown hit.

The two-hour season finale nabbed 1.6 million viewers, peaking at nearly two million when the winner was revealed (all numbers 2+).

Dance Canada premiered in September to 1.2 million and gained popularity, especially with female viewers who accounted for 70% of the total audience. Performance episodes averaged 1.4 million viewers, likely helped by a big push from CTV.

Meanwhile, the show’s top 10 finalists are embarking on a 15-city Canadian tour, getting underway Jan. 30, which will include performances from the first season.

The show is a spinoff from the US version, which debuted in 2005 and has since sparked similar versions in countries such as New Zealand, Turkey, Israel and Greece.
