New Ratings System Continues to Produce Huge Numbers For CBC Despite Woeful Leafs

From the ever-awesome William Houston at Truth and Rumours:

The new system of measuring audiences – the personal people meters — continues to produce big sports numbers for the TV networks.

The CBC drew 2.306 million for the Leafs-Vancouver Canucks game, a split telecast that included regional games New York Rangers-Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins-Ottawa Senators.

A year ago, with the old system of measurement, that lineup would have produced an audience of about 1.4 million, maybe 1.5 million. That’s a jump of about 800,000 viewers. More on this later.
