World Snooker Championship Attracts Huge Audience On BBC and Warner Bros. Discovery Platforms


Staff member
A peak audience of 4.5 million BBC viewers watched the final of the World Snooker Championship on Monday night, the highest figure for eight years. Ronnie O’Sullivan made history with a record equalling seventh victory at the Crucible, beating Judd Trump 18-13 in the final. The 4.5 million peak on BBC Two was the highest since 2014, and an increase of 17% on last year.

I was pleasantly surprised the night before the final when Snooker got top billing in Sports on the BBC news site. This was the same weekend when tight races were happening in the closing weeks of tight English Football leagues including the Premier League.
