I love that the NY Jets aren't even on the map.

I thought it was one of the better Grey Cup games...very entertaining!

I was at a Grey Cup party and I made money, so it was a great day.


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

On Sportscentre this morning they announced that 10 million unique viewers tuned in to watch the 102nd Grey Cup. This year's Grey Cup was actually also broadcast on ESPN2 in the United States.

 

11.5m unique viewers tuned in to watch the 101st Grey Cup, so it appears as though there was a dip in viewership.

 

The 2014 Grey Cup was not a sellout. Over 1,400 tickets remained unsold (although in my observation most of those were horrible upper deck corner seats, which are dreadful at BC Place). Announced attendance was still well over 52,000. For reference, the 101st Grey Cup, held in Regina, had an attendance of 44,710.

Major Sporting Finals Top Canadian TV Rankings in 2014

A turbulent year for Canadian broadcasters and advertisers reveals major sporting finals still pulled in the biggest TV audiences in 2014.

Full-year ratings from Numeris underline the continuing dominance of the Super Bowl, which was the most watched Canadian TV tentpole on CTV and RDS with 7.9 million viewers. The 2014 Oscars on CTV came in second in the Canadian TV rankings with 6.4 million viewers, followed closely by the gold medal hockey game at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi in third place on the CBC with 5.7 million viewers.

The college football championship game next Monday will likely be the highest-watched college football game ever on cable.  This is the first year of this format.

Both playoff games yesterday were great entertainment value especially if you are a fan of either the Pac or Big 10: finally the SEC is no longer anointed the "best" conference almost by default especially by Big Media like ESPN. U-O completely dismantled defending champion Florida State and the OSU-Alabama game was awesome. Much more exciting IMO than either the CFL or especially the massively overhyped and endlessly pimped Super Bowl, which more often than not rarely lives up to expectations. Go Ducks...! :thumbsup:

Yes, it was good.  Lots of Ducks fans at the bar yesterday.  If the final on the 12th was not just on cable it'd likely really do well ratings-wise.

First-Ever College Football Playoff semifinals attracts record audience on TSN

 

In Thursday's second semifinal matchup, the ALLSTATE SUGAR BOWL, #4-ranked Ohio State's stunning upset of #1-ranked Alabama attracted an average audience of 534,000 viewers.

Overall, more than 3.8 million unique Canadian viewers tuned in to watch the highly-anticipated COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF semifinals on TSN. Audiences for the record-setting ROSE BOWL GAME Presented by Northwestern Mutual peaked at 1.1 million viewers late in the third quarter, as Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota and the Oregon Ducks pulled away for the victory.

TSN is the exclusive Canadian home to ESPN's comprehensive coverage of the inaugural COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF. ESPN's live coverage of the semifinals delivered the largest two audiences in American cable television history, both attracting more than 28 million viewers.

Yup, it hit 34M.  Blew away the record.

Personally I was glued to the Cowboys-Patriots and, before I got dragged off to curling, the Packers-Niner TV games.

 

I do wonder outside of the teams involved what kind of buzz the Grey Cup in particular and more broadly the CFL, generate? Aside from TSN, which of course was pimping the game, no one I know personally or at work ever mentions either the league or the game. Super Bowl office parties and pools OTOH are everywhere, including our office which has 500 staff. Grey Cup? Nada. Seems to me outside of the Prairies it has at best pockets of support in the Maritimes and, this year at least, Hamilton and that's about it.

^The only Grey Cup buzz this year was about Shorts Guy, who can now wear pants I guess. That's it. That's the buzz.
