TSN’s highly anticipated original documentary series ENGRAVED ON NATION kicked off with an average audience of more than half-a-million viewers (530,000) on Thanksgiving Monday for THE 13th MAN – making it the most-watched documentary ever on TSN.
Overall, more than 1.5 million Canadians tuned in to watch some or all of the broadcast on TSN.
Canadians were also engaged on Twitter, with #13thMan and #EngravedOnANation trending nationally throughout the broadcast.
From documentary filmmaker Larry Weinstein, THE 13TH MAN examines the unique love affair between the Saskatchewan Roughriders and their fiercely loyal fans against the backdrop of the team’s heartbreaking loss at the 97th Grey Cup.
THE 13TH MAN aired immediately following TSN’s broadcast of the Saskatchewan-Toronto game on Monday. With an average audience of 1.057 million viewers, the game is the most-watched CFL regular season game to air in the past two years.
