    Default 2017 TFC TV Ratings Thread

    Probably worth starting a new one given TV coverage just came out.




    Games on CTV

    i heard this and saw it again today on caps forum, that TSN will be calling road games from a TSN studio to save on costs. Much like CMNT qualifiers were done back in the day. Home games will be done as per usual.
    We will see if that is the case.

    Should be interesting to see the ratings for the CTV games.

    The Seattle game is on big Fox - they'll likely take the feed.

    Wow this is really great. All games on TSN and 3 on CTV is fantastic! Should go a long way to help build that TV audience, I guess TSN was really encouraged by the playoff ratings. Even if some of those TSN games end up on TSN2, it's much better than switching between TSN/TSN2 and SNO/SN1/SN360.

    That Vancouver game in March is on CTV at least in part because TSN will be going wall to wall on March Madness. TSN does decent numbers with that, once they get into the Final Four anyway.

    Part of me is wondering if there is going to be serious pressure applied to Vancouver to sign a big name DP striker and actually achieve some success.

    It is easier to get on TSN and CTV, when most of our games are on Friday Night, which is usually a quite night on tv. And saturday some or majority are earlier then the late games, making it easy to do tfc and nhl games same day. Can MARCH 31 already be here

    It is actually 7 Saturday afternoon MLS games that are going to be on CTV - so four others on top of the three TFC games featured on CTV.

    If they can continue the success they had last year I am very curious to see what the TV numbers will be like in 2017 and also The MSM media coverage here in Toronto

    I guess this was deal breaker for MLS to stick with Bell instead going with Sportsnet or CBC who were interested in MLS TV rights.

    is TSN going to show some American games like they did last year? I really enjoyed some of the games on Sunday nights. FYI, FOX will be airing about 4 games (non Canadian teams).

    I only see 5 games of TFC being shown on TSN2, but I have a feeling those TSN channel will change to TSN 1/4 or 1/4/5. Excited about CTV games though.

    ^A companion to the above tweet on US ratings. Speaks more broadly to ratings trend overall, and the importance of "big event" programming

    Soooo on the Vocal Minority Podcast, Manning indicated the ratings are triple from a year ago.

    Has anybody seen any numbers?

    Still yet to see any individual game ratings for Canadian TV, but this story from Paul Tenorio includes a claim from the league that viewership through the first five weeks is up 21% on TSN and 43% on TVA compared to last year.

    We used to get rating numbers from Chris Zelkovich who would put out the weekend sports viewership numbers every week but I don't think he works for Yahoo Sports anymore. Unless someone knows where he used to get his numbers I have no idea where to go for rating information.

    he has a pod cast now, said at end of last one that he hasn't seen any mls in his numbers he gets ... which means they are still less that 100k cutoff he gets

    Amazing how two Canadian teams in the the lowest ranked MLS game on ESPN still outdraws all of Canada on TSN.

    If TFC has been averaging 93k and the Impact 80k, you can pretty much guarantee the Canadian viewership for TFC-MTL was well above ESPN's 181k.

    Where are the numbers this year? This team has been playing so entertaining that the TV numbers must be improving game over game. Would be nice to see.

    TSN got 98k as per an industry person. Don't know how much TVA got. Whitecaps/Orlando got 35k.
