2018 Winter Olympics TV Ratings Slide Downhill to Worst Night Yet

byWarner Todd Huston16 Feb 20180

NBC’s viewership for the Winter Olympics is still falling with ratings for Wednesday, February 14, hitting a new low.

Despite the gold medal win by U.S. skier Mikaela Shiffrin, Wednesday’s broadcast only earned a 13.1/22 in metered market results, according to Deadline.

While that rating brought 19.2 million viewers to the games that night, it was still down eight percent from a comparable night during the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. The night’s numbers also formed part of a 17 percent decline in ratings for NBC for this year’s games over those in Sochi.

On top of the loss over the Sochi games, this year’s numbers fell an even greater 32 percent over the coverage of the 2010 winter games in Vancouver, Canada, The Smoker Room reported.

Finally, Wednesday’s broadcast was also down compared to the night before. NBC realized a 19.6/31 in metered market results for its February 13 programing.

Thursday’s broadcast earned the worst ratings of the games to date.
