Which Winter Olympic sports gather the highest TV viewership?

This question is partly based on the assumption that Norway, which is where I'm from, overestimates cross-country skiing as a major sport.

  • In the Netherlands we consider speed skating as a major sport :) I think a good measure would be the historical diversity of countries with medalists.

  • Completely agree with your comments, I see now how this was a bad question. Regarding using "size", english is not my native language, I realize now it's a badly chosen word for this matter. And to narrow my question, it would be very interesting to see number of TV-viewvers for the different disciplines.

    Okay. I see where you are coming from. I'll attempt to revise your question. Also, here is a link regarding US TV viewership from the 2010 Winter Olympics: nielsen.com/us/en/newswire/2010/…
