Turns out people will tune in to watch a train wreck.
The Calgary Stampeders 60-1 beatdown of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats was the most-watched game on TSN last week, helping the CFL to their best ratings of the 2017 season with an average of 543,000 viewers tuning in.
There’s still plenty of ground to make up, however: total viewership is still down 15 per cent from last season’s 592,000 average.
