The Amazing Race Canada once again beat out America’s Got Talent for the highest average minute audience (2+) of all single-night programs for the week. That’s according to the latest Numeris report, which covers the week of Aug. 7 to 13.

Both reality shows gained viewers over last week, with CTV’s Amazing Race Canada grabbing 1.9 million viewers and City’s America’s Got Talent taking 1.88 million viewers.

Third-place finisher World of Dance also grew its audience over last week (pulling in 1.45 million viewers) and held onto the number three spot. The competition show has now concluded for its first season, and managed to hold a spot in the top five for all weeks that it aired. Big Brother once again took the fourth spot, as well as the fifth, with 1.27 million viewers for its Wednesday broadcast and 1.18 million viewers for Thursday.

Unscripted programming dominated the national market — the highest-ranking scripted program was a rerun of The Big Bang Theory on CTV, which came in eighth of all single-night programs. Only in Calgary did any scripted programming take the top five (with Global series The Night Shift and Salvation pulling in 58,000 and 48,000 viewers, respectively).

In the Francophone Quebec market, SRC’s Les chefs was back on top, with 703,000 viewers.
