NFL TOPS CFL IN DRAFT RAT­INGS

Calgary Herald - - SPORTS -

The NFL crushed the CFL in Canada. In player en­try-draft TV rat­ings, at least. More than twice as many English Cana­di­ans watched the first night of the NFL Draft than watched the one night of the CFL Draft ex­actly seven days later, and in the iden­ti­cal Thurs­day night time slot. TSN has an­nounced that its cov­er­age of the CFL Draft on Thurs­day night drew an av­er­age au­di­ence of 73,000 view­ers, more than dou­ble (116 per cent) its 2019 au­di­ence, and the event’s high­est view­er­ship on TSN since 2014. Some 428,000 unique Cana­dian view­ers watched the CFL Draft at some point. Ac­cord­ing to TSN’S par­ent com­pany Bell Me­dia, an av­er­age au­di­ence of 188,000 watched Round 1 of the NFL Draft on TSN — also more than twice as many as last year, and the most since 2012. Some 917,000 unique Cana­dian view­ers watched Round 1 at some point.
