It was a clean sweep as reality TV programming drew audiences across the country, according to the Numeris charts for the week ending July 28.

The Amazing Race Canada remained at the top nationally in terms of all single-night programs, with an AMA of 1.8 million, slightly lower than last week’s 1.9 million.

With an AMA of more than 1 million each, America’s Got Talent and Big Brother – the latter of which airs a new episode three nights each week – dominated the top-five in every market, slowly and steadily increasing in audience numbers as new seasons hit their stride.

Viewers in Quebec continue to tune in for La recrue, which remained the most-watched single night broadcast with an AMA of 754,000, up slightly from the weeks previous.
