CFL ratings report: Riders-Ticats game posts massive number
So last week, I discussed how the ratings for TSN’s Thursday night broadcasts had underperformed when compared to the other days of the week. Well, there seems to be a quick and easy solution: let the Saskatchewan Roughriders play every Thursday.
The Riders game against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats last Thursday posted a whopping 741,100 average audience on TSN, far and away the highest-rated game of the 2018 season. There were just four regular-season games that posted numbers in excess of 700K in all of 2017. The Riders played in three of them.
Week 4 ratings
Hamilton at Saskatchewan: 741,400
Ottawa at Montreal: 393,900
Edmonton at Toronto: 477,900
B.C. at Winnipeg: 466,800
