It seems French series and season premieres are more popular than English finales and award shows, according to Numeris data for the week of Sept. 13 to 19.

In Quebec, the premiere of TVA’s Masked Singer adaptation Chanteurs masqués was not only the most-watched French program of the week, but its 1.554 million viewers also out-performed the top-rated English programs nationally.

The top-performing English broadcast was the second-to-last episode of America’s Got Talent’s sixteenth season, which featured the performances from this year’s finalists and brought in 1.293 million viewers; the finale, which aired the following night and revealed the winner, brought in 1.209 million viewers. This year’s Emmys broadcast was sandwiched in between them with 1.249 million viewers.

The rest of the top three French programs of the week also managed to out-perform the top English shows. The third season premiere of TVA’s dance show Revolution – which aired following Chanteurs masqués – brought in 1.371 million viewers, while the fourth season premiere of Radio-Canada comedy Discussions avec mes parents brought in 1.325 million. In fact, the top twelve single-night French broadcasts of the week brought in more than a million viewers each.

Regionally, the Emmys topped the ratings in Toronto/Hamilton and Montreal, while America’s Got Talent was at the top in Vancouver/Victoria.
