The Amazing Race Canada came out the gates strong, according to Numeris data for the week of July 4 to 10.

The first episode of the competition show’s new season delivered an AMA of nearly 1.7 million for CTV.

It was followed by the first two episodes of Big Brother’s 24th season. After several weeks at the top, America’s Got Talent was pushed down to fourth, while quiz show Generation Gap came in at fifth.

Regionally, The Amazing Race Canada was the top-rated program in the country’s biggest TV markets, except for Calgary, where it was narrowly beaten by CTV’s broadcast of this year’s Calgary Stampede Parade (Global’s broadcast of the same parade was third).

In Quebec, TVA’s Un zoo pas comme les autres continued its streak as the top-rated show among Francophone audiences.
