Reality competition and game shows are dominating summer viewing among Canadians, according to Numeris data for June 13 to 19.

America’s Got Talent maintained its top spot from recent weeks for Citytv, followed by Weakest Link, both the adult and junior versions of Masterchef and American Ninja Warrior.

Regionally, America’s Got Talent was also the top show in the five biggest TV markets, except for Edmonton, where it was fifth. Also performing well was TSN’s broadcast of Formula One’s Canadian Grand Prix, which was the second-most watched show in Toronto and Montreal.

Though not included in the single-night broadcasts below, the first two games of the Stanley Cup Final brought an AMA of 1.029 million for Sportsnet and 704,000 for CBC.

In Quebec, once again, TVA unscripted show Un zoo pas comme les autres was the top-rated Francophone broadcast, followed by Radio-Canada culinary show Les chefs.
