The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards stole the show for the week ending Sept. 22, according to the latest numbers from Numeris.

The ceremony was the most-watched single night broadcast in Canada with an AMA of more than 1.8 million viewers. The Emmys also topped most markets except Edmonton where it landed at #3 and Vancouver/Victoria where NFL late night just slightly squeezed past it.

Reality series like America’s Got Talent and Big Brother continue to draw the most Canadian viewers across all markets while Dancing with the Stars broke through in Toronto/Hamilton with an AMA of 293,000 viewers for the premiere of its 28th season.

Viewership in Quebec was high again this week with the top-five shows drawing AMA’s of at least 1 million each. With many of the federal party leaders making appearances on Tout le monde en parle ahead of the Oct. 21 election, the talk show entered the charts with an AMA of 1.23 million.
