Game 1 Draws 3 Million to CBC
From William Houston:
In Canada, the CBC, without the advantage of a Canadian team participating, drew a pretty good 3.164 million viewers. The pre-game show was watched by 989,000.
For round three – the two conference finals – CBCSports.ca had 356,000 views for the online streams. That’s a 600 per cent increase over 51,000 in 2009.
So we have 7 million viewers across North America for Game 1.
