France took home Gold at the FIFA 2018 World Cup – but when it came to ratings, TSN was the big winner.

The final broadcast pulled in an average minute audience of 2.17 million viewers, making it the highest audience for a single-night broadcast for the week of July 9 to 15. The match also took every Anglophone city with the exception of Edmonton (where it came in fourth for the week) and even beat out the popular Calgary Stampede broadcast in Calgary.

In a rare Numeris event, the broadcast that topped most of the Anglophone markets also took Quebec’s Francophone market. The final match, broadcast on RDS, pulled in just over 700,000 viewers cheering on the winning French team.

Other big winners included unscripted series The Amazing Race Canada (1.6 million viewers) and Big Brother (1.35 million viewers for Thursday, 1.31 million viewers for Wednesday) and scripted drama Code Black (1.18 million viewers).
