CTV has released the ratings for yesterday’s NFL Conference Championship Games. An average of 2.05 million viewers watched the early, 3pm ET, game between the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens. This is up 2% from the 2.0 million who watched the 3pm ET game between Green Bay and Chicago a year ago. An average of 2.4 million Canadians watched the 6:30pm ET game between the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers on CTV. This is up 20% from last year’s evening game between the Steelers and Jets.
These ratings compare with 1.8 million and 1.27 million for November’s CFL Division Finals, which were broadcast on TSN. The average for the two NFL games was 2.23 million and the average for the CFL games was 1.54 million. It seems that the CFL ratings this season dropped off a bit, while the NFL ratings have remained consistent based on last season.
