In Finland, 619 000 viewers(average) watched the final game between Slovakia and Russia. The number doesn't include those who watched the game from Canal+ payTV channel.

Viewership figures of the "free TV" broadcasts from week 20:

It must be very good numbers in relation to just about anything. The Super Bowl in the US get around 33% of the population, I recon that number is around 20-25% of the population.

But, I want to add one thing though. In basically all of Europe, the stateowned channels (like NBC?) constantly have a very large group of elder viewers. At certain times of the day, any program, no matter what it is almost, gets like 10% of the viewers. Like a big majority of the population in Sweden only had two channels up untill the early 90's and then only three channels long into the 90's. In Sweden, alot of people, mostly elders, watch channel 1, 2 and 4. No other channel.

This means that a meaningless euro hockey league game between say Finland and Sweden in October, can get like 20-25% of the population watching it. While other channels have it alot harder to get good numbers. So, many shows per year in Sweden for example breaks the Super Bowl numbers by a wide margin. Right program at the right time at the right channel, and you get enourmous numbers. Wrong channel, and its impossible to get good numbers.

Last year's Stanley Cup game 7 averaged 18.3 million viewers in all of North America (all time record for NHL).

Don't forget about the timezones in Russia. I'd say the game was played a little bit late for casual audience.
