In the latest TV ratings, NBC’s Friday reruns of Beijing Winter OlympicsOpening ceremony averaged 8.7 million viewers and demo ratings 1.5 – 16 and 30% off from the previous numbers for “2020” Summer Games Opening Event in Tokyo (and even lower than the opening ceremony for 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang).
However, that audience count certainly doesn’t include toad fish of the Peacock stream, and of course there was plenty to dominate on a very quiet Friday in both measures.
Among the Winter Olympics’ precious Friday challengers, CBS’ Famous brother attracted 2.3 million viewers and rated the demo 0.4, while Fox’s Friday Night SmackDown (2 million / 0.5) dwindling by the week, providing one of the smallest audiences in… at least for a short while. (I left my abacus at the office.)
