The actual production value of CBC (picture quality, camera work, ice-level sound) is far better than RDS, but RDS has much better commentators and intermission programming.

I usually watch CBC because I like their picture better.

Because Pedneault is a retard. After game 2 I swore off the CBC biased coverage. Half way during game 3, had to switch back to the CBC. The commentary on RDS gives me nausea.

That and the HD quality of the CBC is much better than RDS.

It's been the opposite most season where I live(Longueil, Videotron).

I'll take a stab at this....

1. Does not offer insight. Compare with McGuire, you might not like his delivery, but you learn about strategy, individual players, match ups, behind the scenes, strengths, weaknesses, tendencies and most importantly player evaluations. Pendneault does none of this.

2. Will always accentuate the negative and the obvious.

3. Spends most of the game giving his opinions on referee decisions. Especially enjoys pointing out how bad a penalty if ever it's one of his whipping boys (sic Russians or any Euro's)

4. Completely misses plays. Example last night on the second Boston breakaway, from my small TV I saw Price make the save with his glove. Pedneault kept saying the player shot wide.

5. Always gets the wrong player in key situations.

6. Quick to fault the Kovy/Koivu/Markov/ Kost ect. Lapierre, Lats, Bouillon can do no wrong.

7. Very hard on Price. Quick to point out it's a bad goal, etc....

Need more.....I getting upset just thinking about Pedneault

That can be due to the Videotron HD receiver. I switched in November from Videotron to ExpressVu and I found a noticeable difference in picture quatily between the two.

I really like Pierre but cannot stand Pednault. If Demers had that job, I'd watch every game on RDS. That guy in the studio with Demers gets on my nerves too.

Great numbers and as I have heard on sports radio, more people are watching RDS across Canada.

Here are the CBC\HNIC audience numbers for the Bruins\Canadiens series from the Globe and Mail,

Game 2 on Saturday: 1.541 million which is tops for the CBC's playoffs so far.

Game 3 on Sunday: 1.453 million another strong audience.

The link shows all the other games over the three day weekend including the RDS games.

The links below show the audience numbers for games 5, 6, and 7 in chronological order. It really does show that the Canadiens outdraw the Leafs.
The CBC had more viewers than RDS for game 7 with a combined total of 4.1 million viewers!

That said, I don't speak French and don't plan to become fluent in French in my lifetime. I'll stick to the CBC and continue sending letters to them about their television content until they spend more time focusing on Canada and not Toronto/Vancouver/Alberta Flavour of the Week.
MANY times I was forced to listen to Habs games in SW Ontario on a french language stn. I have only high school francais. It is amazing how fast you can catch on to what is going on. A fringe benefit is that you don't know enough to have to put up with dopey hockey announcer opinions. Then again the guy might have been a genius and I would have not known it.

Wow, RDS is really giving CBC a run for it's money these playoffs. Outdrawing a channel that EVERYONE in Canada gets(even with a freaking metal rod connected to their tv) is impressive.

I hate CBC's announcer's voice.

And I hate Don Cherry.

So congrats RDS.
