Just when it looked like America’s Got Talent was closing in on The Amazing Race Canada, CTV’s globe-trotting reality series made some gains over its totals last week. For its broadcast on Aug. 7, Race pulled in an average-minute audience of 1.87 million viewers, making it the most-watched single-night program in Canada and gaining over its previous week’s total of 1.65 million viewers. That’s according to the most recent Numeris report, covering Aug. 6 to 12.

Meanwhile, second-place finisher America’s Got Talent held onto the runner-up position, but lost some viewers, bringing in 1.43 million (down from 1.58 million).

Big Brother once again took the third and fourth spots for its Thursday and Wednesday episodes, while MasterChef snuck into the fifth-place spot, rounding out the top shows.

Regionally, the top spot alternated between Race (Edmondon, Calgary) and AGT (Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver). In the Francophone market, Viens-tu faire un tour? shot up to the top spot with an AMA of 642,000 viewers.
