The Amazing Race Canada continues to gain and gain. The Canadian reality show once again came in as the most-watched show for the week, according to the Numeris reports covering Aug. 13 to 19.

Race pulled in 1.89 million viewers for the week, up from 1.86 million the previous week.

Meanwhile, America’s Got Talent, which had held a solid spot on the second-place spot for nearly one month, fell to fourth as it brought in 1.32 million viewers (down from 1.47 million). It was surpassed by both the Thursday and the Sunday episodes of Global’s Big Brother, which pulled in 1.5 million and 1.37 million viewers respectively. The Sunday episode of Big Brother came in fifth place with 1.31 million viewers.

For the second week in a row, the top five featured not only all unscripted series but also shows from the country’s three major networks.

Although it slid nationally, AGT still took the market in Toronto, Edmonton and Vancouver. Other strong regional players were MasterChef, American Ninja Warrior and reruns of The Big Bang Theory.
