Some people here have asked some of us? Where do we get the CFL , T.V. ratings NUMBERS.
Well , today in the TORONTO SATURDAY STAR. Their T.V. guide [STAR WEEK] …
…Has some numbers about the CFL’s T.V. ratings. They also have a CFL sched. and a CFL article in another section.
AND the news is very good for the 2004 season.There will be 81 CFL games on T.V. this season.CBC , TSN and RDS.
CBC’S AVERAGE was 438,000 per game.[second highest in the past decade]
TSN’S was 311,000 average per game.[their 3rd best ever]
Now these are higher than , any NFL game in the regular season, which averages 220,000 for BILLS games …and about 100,000 for all other games.
The CFL T.V. ratings are also higher than the BLUE JAYS [330,000] ,who are third and the RAPTORS, who average 100,000 per game.
The 2004 GREY CUP had 4 million viewers , while the SUPERBOWL had 3.1 million.
So it seems that the CFL is second in CANADA to the NHL…COOL
TSN had 430,000 viewers at it’s peak for… T.D. ATLANTIC.And that is just for pre season.This year should be even better.
