Canadian TV Ratings [Sports]: March 13-15, 2015

Canada’s World Women’s Curling Championship match against China topped Sunday (logo via curlingevents.com)

The nation’s curling fever isn’t quite over. Canada took on China in the Women’s World Curling Championship on Sunday, and the match drew over 600,000 viewers to become the day’s most-watched sporting event. While 600,000 is pretty impressive, it’s nowhere near the 1,250,000 that the Tim Hortons Brier drew the week before.

Hometown Hockey’s Flyers/Senators game took second place for Sunday with 521,000, which would’ve been pretty depressing by itself, but Hometown Hockey’s pre-game show only drew 60,000. Yes, 60,000 on network television. Doesn’t that kinda send a shiver up your spine?

Outside of the Women’s World Curling Championship and Hockey Night in Canada, there wasn’t much else worth watching on TV sports-wise. However, as always, for more on the weekend’s top sports, check out the charts below and Yahoo! Sports at the source link.
