The Super Bowl:
Super Bowl XLVII drew 7.33 million Canadian viewers Sunday night to CTV and RDS, the second largest-ever NFL championship game on TV sets here.The Grey Cup only reached 5.8 million Canadians. Of course, the Stanley Cup does far better up here, but in football, four downs > three and all the rest. Given that the Canadians are watching purely for the game (since the ads are almost entirely repeats of long-running lousy ads, compared to the new, sometimes interesting American ads shown on American networks), this is impressive.
That made last night's telecast the most-watched TV show in Canada this year. Hollywood Reporter
Just a bit of Canadiatrivia.
