While the bronze medal game may be a pain in the butt for the curlers, the volunteers and officials (not to mention the TSN crew), it appears the fans don’t mind. At least those sitting at home on their couches.
TV ratings from the match between Jennifer Jones and Marie-France Larouche drew 633,000 viewers a very strong number for TSN.
The final was even more impressive. It garnered an audience of 1,003,000 viewers that witnessed Heather Nedohin and her Alberta rink win the title. That's massive.
When someone in your office asks why there’s so much curling on TV at this time of year, you now have an answer.
