The summer of reality TV continues, but this time it was the premiere of The Amazing Race Canada coming out on top. The latest single-night ratings from Numeris, which covered the week of July 3 to 9, report that CTV’s reality show brought in an AMA (2+) of 1.89 million viewers. However, the premiere came up shy of last year’s, which drew in an average of 2.05 million viewers.

Dropping out of the top five for the week were City’s America’s Got Talent and CTV’s World of Dance, which both had the week off and returned to the airwaves on July 11. The pair had spent five consecutive weeks in the first and second spots, respectively.

But other reality hits still grabbed the spotlight — CTV’s American Ninja Warrior came in second with an average audience of 1.27 million viewers. Following that were three separate episodes of Big Brother, which brought in average audiences of 1.07, 1.06 and 1.05 million viewers each.

Regionally, The Amazing Race Canada topped all the country’s Anglophone markets save for Montreal (where it swapped places with American Ninja Warrior) and Calgary, where the broadcast of the Calgary Stampede topped the charts with an average of 80,000 viewers (the Stampede failed to crack the top 30 nationally).

In Quebec’s Francophone market, there was a new victor with SRC’s Les chefs, which pulled in an average of 727,000 viewers.
