Didn't see it mentioned anywhere: Andreescu's final at the US Open had an average audience of 3.4M. That's the most watched tennis match ever on TSN, and higher than the most recent installments of the Stanley Cup Final and Grey Cup.

Andreescu's QF had an average of 852K with the SF coming in at 995K.

TSN's audience for the entirety of the tournament was up 69% over last year.

I've started a Canadian TV Thread, the first post pertaining to this is Moncton Rad post 1883

The posts from there on can be moved to the new thread if people don't mind.

Apparently the Als and Riders rated just under 1 million (incl RDS), confirmation to follow.

strong Rider and Bomber teams and a resurgent Montreal market should really help tv ratings going into the playoffs.

People always forget that Quebec loves the Als when they are competitive. Weren't they absolutely killing it in terms of ratings back when they were continously the best team in the league?

Keith Urban ups the ante for Grey Cup halftime acts
Josh Smith 3downnation September 27, 2019

Let’s get it out of the way early: I actually don’t know any Keith Urban songs.

I don’t listen to country music and Urban wasn’t a pop mainstay when I was a teen, so while I know his name I am not sure I could name a single song of his.

With that out of the way let me also say: getting Keith Urban to perform at halftime of the Grey Cup is a massive get for the CFL.

Justin-Bieber-like massive.

Keith Urban is an international superstar. Capital I, capital S. Everyone knows who Keith Urban is and getting a major country star to perform at halftime in Calgary is as perfect a pairing as peanut butter and jam.

No, Urban isn’t Canadian, but so what. Not every halftime act has to be a Canadian. Last year’s, Alessia Cara, was and her announcement was met with a lot of shrugs and “who’s that?” from people of my age. My favourite halftime show of the last decade was Imagine Dragons in B.C. in 2014 and they aren’t Canadian.

The days of Trooper, Burton Cummings and Blue Rodeo playing halftime at the Grey Cup are over and that’s a good thing. The Grey Cup needs fresh acts that will attract non-football, non-50-year-old eyeballs. Cara did that; Bieber did that; Dragons did that; and Urban will do that, too.

There will always be those who complain as no artist is for everyone. Urban isn’t my cup o’ tea, but the CFL did a great job in finding a very popular, very successful, very famous — let’s not forget, he is married to actress Nicole Kidman, who is more famous than words can describe — singer to anchor the country’s most-watched concert.

Whether you like Keith Urban or not, there is no denying that the CFL hit a home run with getting him to be the halftime act and this will only up the ante for future Grey Cups.

^ That's impressive. I'd love to see a crowd like that for a U of M Bisons game.

Looks like between 23 and 36 dollars a pop. Assuming 24,000 seats at 23 a pop, that's north of half a million dollars.

I can't think of any other U Sports football games in Canada that have managed to draw over 20,000 people except for the Vanier Cup.

Impressive further illustrates the work the Argos need to do to revitalize fan interest.

I was thinking U of T and York should try to come up with a gimmick to have a game at BMO. I don't know if any of the other CFL cities have local U Sport rivalries to be able to pull that type of game off.

Vancouver has the Shrum Bowl, but from what I understand it's a much smaller affair than the Panda game, even though it has a level of notoriety of its own.

Both these schools have historically bad football programs, both are already seen as gimmicky and unnecessary (UofT has the history but that is it). The lack of success with York and UofT have no doubt contributes to the overall atrophy of football in the Toronto market.

Toronto is such a weird market for football. The numbers don't lie, there is clearly interest in the game given the reasonably healthy CFL and NFL TV numbers, yet there is such minimal interest in attending games.

Pretty well every football team/event in Toronto in the last 30 years has either flopped (basically the American imports i.e., Bills series, arena football, International Bowl) or struggles mightily (the Canadian leagues i.e., CFL, U Sports).

And no TV coverage AFAIK.

Meanwhile TSN has three networks showing three different NCAA games this afternoon.
