Masked Singer returns to the top, This is Us debuts high: Numeris

The Big Three took number two, while The Masked Singer, SNL and The Amazing Race continued to dominate.
This Is Us - Season 1

The Masked Singer took a week off, clearing the runway for The Amazing Race to overtake it as Canada’s most-watched show last week. However, the quirky stage show returned with a vengeance on Oct. 28 and took an AMA of 1.86 million viewers, making it the most-watched single night program of the week.

The Amazing Race was knocked all the way down into fourth place; it came behind the fifth season premiere of This is Us (which had its premiere date moved up by NBC and Canadian network partner CTV), which drew an average of 1.58 million viewers per minute across its two-hour run, and Saturday Night Live, which has continued to pull in audiences of more than 1.5 million since its season premiere.

In Quebec, the top-five continued to all perform strong, with views of more than one million for each title. The return of drama L’échappée was on top, with 1.18 million viewers.

Regionally, the only Anglo market where The Masked Singer took the lead was in Calgary; Edmonton got its trivia on with The Weakest Link, Vancouver/Victoria stayed loyal to 60 Minutes, Toronto/Hamilton went even harder for SNL than it did the previous week, while Montreal kept its tissue boxes handy for This is Us.
