It looks as if Canada is totally ready for the Super Bowl. CTV’s Packers/Seahawks match was the most-watched game of the weekend with more than 2.3 million tuning in on Sunday. The night’s other big game featured the Colts and the Patriots, and it drew 1.9 million to tie with Hockey Night in Canada‘s early games to become the weekend’s second most-watched sporting event.

The weekend also saw a slew of Pinty’s All-Star Skins Games. Most of them did fairly nicely in the ratings. The top one of the bunch (Sunday’s Women’s Final) drew 579,000 to TSN. The Women’s Final actually managed to attract a larger audience than Hometown Hockey and Hockey Night in Canada‘s pre-game show.
