With only one more episode of Private Eyes left to air, Canadians are tuning in to see how the show ends, according to Numeris data for the week of Aug. 9 to 15.

As Global’s comedy-drama prepares to air its series finale this week, the third-to-last Aug. 12 episode took the top spot nationally with nearly 1.2 million viewers. It also took the top spot in Calgary and was near the top in Edmonton and Vancouver/Victoria.

Fantasy Island also performed well nationally for Global, taking the number two spot.

Elsewhere, reality television continued to perform well with summer TV viewers. While the thrice-weekly episodes of Big Brother have slipped slightly from their top spots in the ratings, the show still managed to land in the top five nationally, as well as in Toronto. America’s Got Talent was the week’s big reality performer, landing in third nationally and taking the top spot in Toronto/Hamilton, Montreal and Vancouver/Victoria.

In Quebec, Francophone viewers continued to place TVA’s Hôpital New Amsterdam and S.W.A.T. at the top of the ratings.
