CFL DIVISION SEMIFINAL RATINGS UP 14% FROM 2015

Sunday’s CFL PLAYOFFS doubleheader scored season-high audiences on TSN, as overnight data from Numeris confirms that the CFL’s Eastern and Western Semi-Finals marked an increase of 14% compared to last year.

The Western Semi-Final featuring Winnipeg @ BC attracted an average audience of 1.1 million viewers on TSN, as BC quarterback Jonathon Jennings scored his second rushing touchdown of the game late in the fourth quarter as the Lions stormed back to defeat the Blue Bombers 32-31.

The Eastern Semi-Final featuring Edmonton @ Hamilton attracted an average audience of 903,000 viewers on TSN, as Edmonton secured a dramatic 24-21 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sean Whyte’s nine-yard field goal with seven seconds remaining.

TSN’s exclusive live coverage of the 2016 CFL Eastern and Western Semi-Finals also made TSN the most-watched channel in Canada on Sunday, ahead of all conventional network overnight audiences.

TSN’s exclusive live coverage of the SHAW ROAD TO THE GREY CUP continues Sunday, Nov. 20, beginning with the Eastern Final Pre-Game Show at 12 noon ET on TSN1, TSN3, and TSN4, followed immediately by the Eastern Final at 1 p.m. ET on TSN, and the Western Final at 4:30 p.m. ET on TSN1, TSN4, and TSN5.

The following weekend, TSN delivers complete live coverage of the 104th GREY CUP presented by Shaw – one of 60+ iconic championships that live on TSN – live from Toronto’s BMO Field on Sunday, Nov. 27 at 6:30 p.m. ET on TSN.

The Edmonton Inuit should be able to get past a Henry Burris team but I hope not.

Great to see the numbers trending in the right direction. Much more needs to be done but the glass is half full. Gee maybe Orridge isn't so bad. Rod likes him now so he's doing something right, unless he's paying Rod on the side...

In stadium attendance was down 12.6 percent though.

Those games were 2 of the CFL's best I've seen this season, so why is it so surprising that the ratings were up??

Because you don't know if the game will be "the best" until they are being played maybe????
