Canadian TV Ratings [Sports]: June 20-22, 2014

The World Cup is still killing it in the ratings (image via CBC Media Centre)

Last week saw monster ratings for the World Cup and this week is no exception. I’m absolutely floored by these numbers. World Cup games took the top nine spots on the list of top matches of the weekend with 476,000 separating the poorest performing World Cup match and the most watched non-World Cup event, Friday’s Jays game vs. the Reds on Sportsnet. The top World Cup game over the weekend was a match featuring the US and Portugal which attracted 2,701,000, that’s a dip from last weekend’s top World Cup game England vs. Italy’s 2,800,000, but still huge numbers.

For the full list visit the source link below and see how the World Cup clobbered the Jays, took an axe to the CFL, slashed NASCAR and pulverized Formula One.
