NBC continues to see ratings numbers for the Olympics that are well down from the numbers for the Sochi Games four years ago.
The AP reports that about 18.6 million viewers watched the Winter Games in prime time on Monday on either NBC, NBCSN or streaming.
“That’s down 21 percent from the 23.5 million viewers who saw the Olympics on the corresponding Monday night in Sochi four years ago,” the AP reports. “The 16.3 million who watched the NBC telecast Monday was down 31 percent from Sochi. NBC says the average prime-time viewership for Pyeongchang is 21.1 million, but no individual evening has topped the 20 million figure since last Tuesday.”
