Canadian TV Ratings: September 15-21, 2014

The Amazing Race Canada‘s finale was this week, but if you’ve come here to see how the finale actually did in the finals (not just the overnights which I already have over here), well, I have some bad news for you. Since The Amazing Race Canada aired on Tuesday and Sunday of this week, Numeris decided to cobble the ratings together for both episodes and pop it in as a single entry onto the week’s top-30 chart. That makes it difficult to understand how the finale and the penultimate episode of the season did, as it appears as if they just averaged the ratings for the two episodes.

Complicating matters is the companion after show After The Race, which according to Numeris aired during the finale of The Amazing Race Canada. Numeris says The Amazing Race Canada aired from 9-10 p.m. on Tuesday and Sunday, while After The Race aired from 9:02-10 p.m. on Sunday. That of course doesn’t make any sense, which makes me wonder why they put The Amazing Race Canada‘s final and penultimate episode of the season as a single entry on the chart especially considering Big Brother aired on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday of this week and the top-30 chart listed them individually. 
 
Speaking of Big Brother, that show dipped in the ratings from last week. It brought in 1,348,000 on Tuesday, 1,408,000 on Wednesday and 1,205,000 on Friday, down from the 1,494,000, 1,588,000 and 1,411,000 it brought in from last Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday’s broadcasts respectively.
 
This week also saw some of the season’s new shows trickle in and a few of them managed to make the top-30 already. Mysteries of Laura was the week’s sixth most popular program, while other newbie Madam Secretary was the week’s 11th most popular show.
