The week before American Thanksgiving saw several US imports dominate Numeris’ weekly Top-30 list in English Canada, including the first responder drama 9-1-1.
In francaphone Quebec, however, one show drew more viewers than any other show the same week all across Canada. That was Chanteurs masqués, the french language, made-in-Montreal version of The Masked Singer. It drew 1,837,000 viewers to TVA to the first-season semi-finals on Sunday, November 21.
Although Numeris doesn’t merge the lists, that was more than 9-1-1-‘s take of 1,752,000 across English Canada and way more than the 1,496,000 who watchd The Masked Singer in English the same week on CTV.
Hosted by actor Guillaume-Lemay-Thivierge, the Chanteurs masqués panel features comedian Sam Breton, singers Véronic Dicaire and Marc Dupré, actress Anouk Meunier and comedian Stéphane Rousseau. Among those eliminated earlier this season was former Quebec Nordiques NHL coach Michel Bergeron.
