Canadian TV Ratings: August 25-31, 2014

The Emmys aired this week, and I can’t help but feel that the numbers disappointed CTV. The award show for the best in TV only attracted 2,322,000. While that was easily the top broadcast of the night and the second most popular show of the week, right behind The Amazing Race Canada, it actually drew in nearly 230,000 fewer viewers than MasterChef in the same slot last week. Of course MasterChef only airs for an hour, and the Emmys aired for three, but I think you know what I’m getting at. The Emmy Awards also paled in comparison to the Grammys this year. The Grammys aired in January and drew 2,681,000…on City.

Since the Emmys aired on a Monday this year, it caused CTV to bump MasterChef to Tuesday. Of course, it fell dramatically. MasterChef lost 765,000 viewers from last week. I guess a bunch of those people chose to watch it in simulcast on Fox instead. Still, the 1,786,000 who tuned in on Tuesday made it possible for the show to be the second most watched program for the day, behind The Amazing Race Canada and helped to bump America’s Got Talent right out of the list of the top three shows of the day. The Amazing Race Canada, on the other hand, was amazingly steady. It only lost 1,000 viewers from last week.
