America's Got Talent

It’s been four weeks at the top for America’s Got Talent, and the reality competition show on City keeps growing its audience. According to the most recent weekly report from Numeris (covering the week of June 19 to 25), the reality show pulled in the highest average minute audience (2+) of all single-night programs for the week — once again bringing in more views than the previous week, with 1.95 million (up from 1.84 million last week).

This is the third consecutive week that AGT has grown its audience from the last.

Ousting World of Dance, which spent three weeks in the number-two spot, were the NHL Awards on Sportsnet, which captured 1.41 million viewers. World of Dance, which airs on CTV, moved to third position with 1.27 million viewers.

Rounding out the top five were The Big Bang Theory, which brought in 1.1 million viewers with a rerun episode on CTV, and The Handmaid’s Tale on Bravo, which pulled in 981,000 viewers.

Regionally, the top spot rotated between America’s Got Talent and the NHL Awards in all Anglophone markets, save for Montreal, where World of Dance came out on top. Established series such as Private Eyes and Masterchef also made their ways into the top five in several markets, while Steve Harvey’s Funderdome, a new competition series for inventors and entrepreneurs, placed fifth in Montreal (but failed to crack the top 30 nationally).

Once again, TVA’s La poule aux oeufs d’or and Refuge animal took the number one and two spots in the Francophone market, respectively.
