Canada Ratings Watch

28 Oct

Here’s an update on Canadian TV ratings. These BBM ratings are sourced from’s Remote Control Blog. TSN continues to post some low numbers outside of Toronto Maple Leafs games. The CFL is regularly beating most NHL on TSN telecasts so far but those numbers should rise as the season progresses.

The Leafs continue to be a ratings powerhouse. October 17’s game garnered ratings that beat several nationally aired shows even though the game was only shown regionally. Among those that it beat handily on that Monday night were TSN’s broadcast of Monday Night Football and The Score’s WWE Raw.

    Well the NHL need to open their collective eyes and see the bigger picture, sort out the European blackout and I’m sure the ratings would increase significantly.

    This blackout has gone on too long now, there are thousands of loyal hockey supporters here in Europe that I would imagine are very frustrated, like myself, with a no show of their favourite sport.

      The euro troubles have nothing to do with Canadian ratings. They aren’t factored in and most fans in Canada are completely unaware when it comes to this issue. They aren’t protesting. Traditionally, TSN’s numbers rise once winter rolls around.
