America’s Got Talent takes the week: Numeris

The reality show was back on top for the first week of summer broadcasting.

With fall and midseason mainstays like NCIS, Survivor and Big Bang Theory having concluded their seasons, the major broadcast networks’ summer schedules are officially underway. For the first week, America’s Got Talent has debuted at the top of the Numeris charts.

The reality competition show took the highest average-minute audience of all single-night programs in Canada for the week of May 28 to June 3. It pulled an average of 1.64 million viewers, although it fell just short of the average audience received by the Stanley Cup Finals (which were broadcast over three nights and exempt from the MiC Numeris charts).

Following AGT was CTV’s summer medical drama Code Black with 1.42 million viewers. The top five was rounded out by Global’s Instinct and two more CTV competition shows, World of Dance and Masterchef Canada.

Various cities favoured different shows; AGT took the top spot in Toronto and Vancouver, while World of Dance was the reality favourite in Montreal. In Edmonton, a broadcast of the movie San Andreas took the top, while Calgary favoured Code Black. The Francophone market once again upheld game show La poule aux oeufs d’or as its top show.
