9-1-1

With The Amazing Race Canada now concluded for another season, there was a new program at the top of the Numeris charts. After a summer of unscripted series taking the top spot (including eight consecutive weeks for The Amazing Race Canada), Global’s scripted drama 9-1-1 soared to the top of the national charts.

According to the Numeris report for the week of Sept. 17 to 23, 9-1-1, now in its second season, garnered an average minute audience of 2.24 million viewers, besting all other single-night programs for the week.

Airing on Sept. 17, the 70th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards drew close to 2 million viewers, coming in second place in many markets (and first in Montreal and Toronto). Nationally, it came in ahead of national top-five staples America’s Got Talent and Big Brother.

Unité 9 stayed at the top of the charts in Quebec for a second week running.
