Top shows are back in the seven figures: Numeris

Plus, hockey rules nationally, but basketball is the hottest game in Toronto.
AGT

America’s Got Talent was once again the top single-night program in the country.

For the week ending Aug. 2, the reality show pulled in an AMA of 1.15 million viewers. This was not only the highest of all single-night programs, but it was a notable boost for AGT. While it’s been on top for most of the summer, the last several weeks have seen its ratings slip into the six figures.

AGT was followed by World of Dance and Agents of SHIELD, both of which have kept up consistent ratings.

It was a rare summer viewing of Hockey Night in Canada that came in fourth; with the Stanley Cup Qualifiers underway, an average of 765,000 viewers tuned into the Saturday night broadcast. The Qualifiers played best in Montreal and Calgary, where they were the top programs for the week.

Additionally, the Qualifiers aired an additional seven broadcasts across Saturday and Sunday beside the HNIC match. With seven total broadcast slots, the games brought in an average of 788,000 viewers per minute on Sportsnet.

Although basketball didn’t score as big nationally, the Raptors were a regional hit. With 187,000 viewers, the games pulled in a higher AMA in the Toronto market than the Stanley Cup qualifiers did.

Outside of good sports news, some markets showed a notable boost in their overall ratings. Vancouver, for example, saw a major shift in its top-five, with some programs like America’s Got Talent growing their audience by more than 50% week-over-week.
