Nice to see F1 viewer numbers at that level. I probably haven't missed a qualifying or race session in 25 plus years and going to Montreal in the 1990 and 2000s to attend the race sealed the deal for sure. But among my work colleagues and friends, I have maybe run into one other person who even pays attention to F1.

Given the start times are generally either early morning (Europe races) or late night (Asia races), I think the viewer numbers are even more impressive. TSN could probably stand to promote and cover F1 a bit more (Sportscentre, etc.) to take advantage of that level of viewership.

I’m surprised the Jays aren’t doing better numbers they are the most entertaining team in the MLB atm. Well it probably has a lot to do with streaming.

I've missed some games that were on Sportsnet One. I didn't even know I got Sportsnet One until today as it's up in the high 100s on cable here and I'd never bothered to look up there.

The Thursday night telecast on TSN of the BC Lions and Calgary Stampeders averaged 522,000 viewers.

The Friday night telecast of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Toronto Argonauts did strong numbers for TSN. The game averaged 609,000 viewers, which is the most-watched game between those teams since 2014.

The early Saturday night game between the Montreal Alouettes and Edmonton Elks averaged 496,000 viewers on TSN.

However, as an aside, Across TSN and RDS (Réseau des sports), the Montreal/Edmonton game attracted an average audience of 691,000 viewers, an increase of 26% compared to Montreal’s 2019 season opener (also against Edmonton).

The Saturday week two finale between the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Saskatchewan Roughriders attracted 671,000 viewers, a higher audience than their two games in 2019.

Week 2 of the CFL season attracted an average audience of 583,000 viewers. An increase of 39% from week 2 of the 2019 season.

Thursday: BC/Calgary: 522,000
Friday: Toronto/Winnipeg: 609,000
Saturday: Hamilton/SSK: 671,000

It's even worse for me. Bell in NB has all the sports channels in the low 600s, and I forget they even exist. :rolleyes:

Agreed and nice to see but it is amazing how few people I run into follow it.

Watching Spa right now and love how mixed this season's results have been which has no doubt impacted ratings in a positive way.

:cheers:

It's pretty incredible that F1 can become as popular as it is right now despite the complete dominance by Mercedes and Hamilton. Looking forward to a more competitive championship fight 2022-onwards.

I've met a few people that follow F1 in the flesh and it's pretty nice!

This makes sense, as Alouettes ratings on RDS tend to be in the 200-250 k range pretty consistently for the regular season.

F1 in Quebec is actually a top 5 sport in terms of popularity. I'd say it might even be in third place in terms of popularity, behind hockey and football (CFL-NFL). Maybe tied with soccer for third, but definitely ahead of MLB and NBA.

F1 ratings on RDS are generally in the 200-250 k range.

It's one of their most valuable properties.

Totally missed it. Poulin scores in overtime, again. God, the Americans must hate her. I'm going to have to go back and watch this game. I guess a Canadian player broke her leg in the celebration.

Hackslack Sep 1, 2021 8:22 PM

Epic ending to the game. Was so pumped to be able to watch it…. Who was it that got hurt at the end during the celebrations? She got carried off in a chair I think… anyone know what happened?

Blayre Turnbull

When video replay confirmed that Marie-Philip Poulin scored the winning goal in overtime, Canadian players poured onto the ice to celebrate. Turnbull, who was already on the ice when the buzzer sounded, was the first one to jump into goaltender Ann-Renee Desbiens’ arms, but fell awkwardly. Turnbull suffered a broken fibula during the celebration, according to TSN’s Meaghen Johnson.

The good news: it’s a clean break and she’s expected to be back skating in 6-8 weeks.

The TV ratings are in for Week 4 of the CFL season. On the Canadian side, the numbers have been promising in the early weeks of the season. Overall, in the first four weeks of this season, the CFL has attracted an average audience of 524,000 viewers, an increase of 11% compared to the same period in the 2019 season.

On the American side of things, the numbers have been slightly disappointing. Although, all CFL games air on ESPN’s linear networks. ESPN2, ESPNNews, and ESPN+. The viewership totals are barely registering. Firstly, the games that air on ESPN News are not monitored by Nielsen Media Research, as they have been in years past. Furthermore, the later than usual start of the CFL season has put them in direct competition with the NFL, and with the NFL’s season upon us, getting eyeballs on the CFL product in the fall will be more challenging in the coming weeks ahead.

Due to the postponement of the Edmonton-Toronto game last Thursday. There were only three CFL games played in week 4.

CFL On TSN Week 4 TV Ratings
Last Friday’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats-Montreal Alouettes game attracted an average audience of 500,000 viewers. A 25% increase compared to the last meeting between both teams in 2019.
Saturday’s BC-Ottawa game averaged 400,000 viewers.
Sunday Night’s riveting game between Calgary and Winnipeg averaged 673,000 viewers, becoming the most-watched game between both teams since 2013.
(Numbers provided by TSN/Bell Media)

CFL On ESPN2 Week 4 TV Ratings
Sunday Night’s Calgary-Winnipeg telecast on ESPN2 did not register in the top 150 rated cable programs. The average viewership for the game was 78,000 viewers.

Thus far, in a minimal sample. The ESPN2 based CFL telecasts have averaged roughly 100,000 viewers per telecast.

In week five, two of the CFL’s games will air on ESPN News. Sunday’s Winnipeg-Saskatchewan game at 6 pm ET. And on Monday at 4:30 pm ET, the Edmonton Elks and Calgary Stampeders clash in the Labour Day Classic.
