ESC 2016: POOR VIEWING FIGURES IN FINLAND - BEATEN BY ICE HOCKEY

A bit disappointing viewing figures in Finland for the Eurovision song contest. The final gathered infront of the television an average of 675.000 (1.392.000 turned in for at least 3 minutes), a bit better than last year's 650.000, and the first semifinal where Finland was participating 580.000 (1.181.000). That's a lot less than last year when Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät attracted 889.000 viewers. The second semifinal did the worst,  297.000 (607.000). Last year it was still 351.000. This however makes the top-3 of YLE2 channel's weekly chart. 
And if you think Finns aren't watching tv you are wrong: they are watching the Ice Hockey Wolrdchampionships in Russia, where Finland has yet to lose a game. The matches are watched by 1,4-1,6 million viewers with peaks over 2 million..... 
So far Finland has beaten Slovakia 5-0, France 3-1, Hungary 3-0, USA 3-2, Germany 5-1, Belarus 6-2 and is leading it's B-group. Something this Eurovision blogger has been totally ignoring until now.....
