One of Canada’s most-watched shows this year maintained its spot at the top of the ratings to close out its 42nd season, according to Numeris data for the week of May 23 to 29.

The two-hour Survivor finale – in which Ajax, Ontario native Maryanne Oketch was named the winner – drew an AMA of 1.466 million for Global. While that was slightly lower than some of the high water marks it set this season, it did beat out the season finales of NCIS, FBI: International and Grey’s Anatomy, as well as the series finale of This Is Us. However, the FBI spin-off and This Is Us may have suffered from their respective finales airing in competition on Tuesday at 9 p.m.

All five of those shows also fared well in the five major regional markets, with Survivor at the top in Toronto/Hamilton, This Is Us at the top in Montreal, and NCIS at the top in Edmonton.

The final games of the “Battle of Alberta” in the Stanley Cup Playoffs also continued to perform well in Calgary and Edmonton. Though Numeris counts the games as multi-night broadcasts, and aren’t included in the lists below, the average viewership on both Sportsnet and CBC was well ahead of the top-rated single-night broadcast in both markets.

In Quebec, TVA’s unscripted wildlife show Un zoo pas comme les autres was once again the most-watched French broadcast, though it was only 6,000 viewers ahead of Radio-Canada cooking competition show Les Chefs!
