Canadian Numbers So Far
April 20, 2010 6 Comments
With William Houston being a twit for the last week, I go to Chris Zelkovich of the Toronto Star for numbers:
atings have been strong and both Canadian networks can claim victories. The Ottawa opener drew 1.7 million to CBC, while Montreal’s first game hit 1.5 million on TSN.
Heck, even Versus is boasting record ratings, which has a lot to do with the quality of the hockey. The intrigue has been practically Olympian in calibre with almost as much excitement.
Just as there’s little to choose between the two Canadian channels in ratings, there hasn’t been much difference in the way they’ve presented the games.
