Toronto FC's average audience for its MLS games on TSN and CTV is 93,000 viewers, up 59 percent from 2016. By comparison, the National Post reported
audience for the baseball Blue Jays is down 21 percent but still far greater than the audience for TFC: 706,300 per game on Sportsnet.
TFC, which leads the race for the MLS Supporters'
Shield, appeared on CTV, Canada’s most-watched television network, three times in 2017, the first time the network has aired MLS games.
The Blue Jays are last in the American
League's Eastern Division.
