Excellent. Let those self-righteous idiots learn. The same ratings disaster happened to ESPN in 2017, after they to decided to become a Leftist propaganda network. The people are fighting back.

Hockey Night in Canada ratings plummet since Don Cherry’s firing
By The Post Millennial, December 25, 2019:
According to a new report from the Toronto Sun’s Brian Lilley, the ratings for Hockey Night in Canada have declined sharply since the firing of Canadian icon Don Cherry.
Lilley writes, “in the two weeks following Cherry’s dismissal the eastern broadcast of Hockey Night in Canada failed to make the Top 30 TV shows ranked by Numeris.
That means the premier hockey game in Canada failed to draw as many viewers as NCIS: New Orleans, one of two NCIS shows in the top 30.
It also failed to replace Chicago Fire and Chicago Med.”
Lilley pointed out that “the most recent ratings available show Hockey Night in Canada down more than half a million viewers from their peak earlier this year. The December 13 main game drew just 810,000 viewers compared to 983,000 for the same weekend in 2018.”
The Numeris numbers are as follows:
October 5: 1247
October 12: 1364
October 19: 1150
October 26: 1102
November 2: 989
November 9: 1027
November 30: 1053
December 7: 822
December 14: 810
in a wildly unpopular move, Sportsnet fired Cherry on Remembrance Day after he criticized new Canadians for not wearing the poppy to honour veterans.
Cherry has since launched his own podcast that is one of the most popular in Canada.
