NBC’s broadcast of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics’ opening ceremony on Friday delivered 27.8 million total viewers (per finals), obviously dominating the night yet down in audience versus both the winter games in Sochi 2014 (31.7 mil/8.6) and Vancouver 2010 (32.6 mil).
Opposite the Olympics, per fast nationals….
THE CW | Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (620K/0.2) held steady. Jane the Virgin (790K/0.3) rose to a season-high audience while holding onto last week’s season-high demo.
CBS | Big Brother: Celebrity Edition (4.3 mil/1.0) fell 22 and 29 percent from Thursday’s numbers.
ABC | Leading out of assorted Charlie Brown heartbreaks, Child Support (2.2 mil/0.4) dropped to season lows with its finale.
