With the season finale around the corner, The Amazing Race Canada drew an AMA of 2 million viewers, giving the reality series another week at the top of the Numeris charts, for the period ending Sept. 1.

In fact, reality TV took over the top-five nationally with a double dose of Big Brother, the Tuesday night broadcast of America’s Got Talent and Masterchef; each with an AMA of more than 1 million viewers.

BH90210 all but fell from the top of the charts except in the Toronto/Hamilton market and, for the first time this summer, CFL action drew sizable audiences in Edmonton (58,000) and Calgary (53,000) when the Blue Bombers took on the Roughriders.

Home renovation show Les rénos d’hugo was the most-watched single-night broadcast in the Quebec market drawing an AMA of nearly 700,000 viewers and Fos du bbq made its debut with 618,000 viewers.
