I thought id put the topic on to let you lot know what tv audiences tournaments are getting and ask on tournaments if you are interested. I mainly did it cause I wanted to let people know how many viwers the world open this year is getting and I will post it on here once available. Because personally I like the tournament a lot but I think its failed, as its main aim was to attract more viewers and as it hasnt been advertised or promoted at all I dont think it has produced higher viewing rates, but I may be wrong.
I will put some tournaments tv audiences and channel on here -
1999 WORLD SNOOKER CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL (MON 20:01) 6.02 -BBC2
2005 WORLD SNOOKER CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL (MON 19:01) 4.790 - BBC2
2008 WORLD SNOOKER CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL (MON 20:00) 3.590 - BBC2
2009 WORLD SNOOKER CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL (MON 20:00) 3.040 - BBC2
2010 WORLD SNOOKER CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL (MON 20:01) 2.560 - BBC2
2010 MASTERS SNOOKER FINAL (SUN 20:00) 2.850 - BBC2
2009 MASTERS SNOOKER FINAL (SUN 20:04) 2.600 - BBC2
2006 MASTERS SNOOKER FINAL (SUN 20:00) 3.230 - BBC2
2009 GRAND PRIX SNOOKER FINAL (SUN 20:01) 1.630 - BBC2
2007 GRAND PRIX SNOOKER FINAL (SUN 20:00) 1.880 - BBC2
2010 SHANGHAI MASTERS SNOOKER FINAL (SUN 12:44) 68000 - eurosport1
6000 - eurosportHD
2009 UK CHAMPIONSHIP SNOOKER FINAL (SUN 21:04) 2.140 - BBC2
2006 UK CHAMPIONSHIP SNOOKER FINAL (SUN 20:01) 2.620 - BBC2
Thats just a few I thought might be interesting. Looking at the world champ finals it just shows how many viewings have dropped since 1999 (which is as far back as I can go) and I also thought its interesting that the Masters final 2010 got more viewers than World champ final 2010.
Anyway if youd like to know any viewers of tournaments just ask..
