Nintendo World Championships 2017 had the highest eSports TV ratings on Disney XD this year

Posted on October 11, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

The Nintendo World Championships 2017 took place this past weekend, and while it was happening, the event was being shown live on Disney XD. It seems to have gone over quite well given how the broadcast had the highest ratings for an eSports program on the channel this year. It beat out the Smash Bros. Wii U finals at EVO 2017 and repeats of Nintendo’s Splatoon 2 tournaments.

We also have a look at how the Nintendo World Championships 2017 stack up against eSports ratings across all channels in 2017. It came in 20th, which is pretty respectable, especially since many of the top spots are for CBS’ Candy Crush show.

Below are the full results:

      It actually seems like a pretty cool show. They use a huge screen and have the players suspended by wires. It’d be cool to play it one day.

    Just for a note; Ducktales 2017 did 386,000 viewers at the time.

      Disney XD has MUCH lower ratings than standard kids’ networks, so that’s a lot to them.

        Though personally its better then its non premium network, disney channel, cause it focuses on animation.

    Hope this means Dinsey will do more broadcasting of more competitive events. I would love to watch smash 4 top 8s on my TV without needing to set it up on twitch
