America’s Got Talent takes the top: Numeris

But an eclectic mix of programming rounded out the rest of the TV rankings for the week.

As summer starts, TV viewing took a significant dip across the country for the week of June 14 to June 20.

America’s Got Talent took the top spot nationally with a single-day AMA of 977,000, as well as across most markets, according to the latest numbers from Numeris.

While NHL hockey interest seems to have waned on the surface, despite the Montreal Canadiens making it into the Stanley Cup Finals, audiences still flocked to the screens for round three of the playoffs for a multi-day (Monday through Sunday) AMA of 1.14 million on Sportsnet across Canada, and 966,000 on CBC.

Canada’s top five TV programming was an eclectic mix, with Masterchef landing in second, followed by the CTV Sunday Movie (Black Panther), season two of Lego Masters and The Blacklist, which will air its season 8 finale on June 23.

The Bachelorette and the Rob Lowe-hosted Mental Samurai competition made the list in Toronto, and Hôpital New Amsterdam and Dans l’oeil du dragon, the French-language version of Dragon’s Den, took the top two spots in French Quebec, the only market that didn’t lead with America’s Got Talent.

In Edmonton, Global News Morning on Saturday took the second and third rankings, and History Channel’s survival series, Alone, made the list in Calgary and Vancouver/Victoria.

Interestingly, long-running drama Coronation Street on CBC made Montreal’s top five TV viewing.
