As I tweeted last night...
"I sat down with every intention of watching anything other than the Olympics. Almost 2 hours later- I’m all in!"
Watching Chloe Kim win gold in the snowboard halfpipe was the best! But snowboarding isn't Americans' favorite Winter Olympic sport to watch. Here's the breakdown...
I hate crying but I'll give myself a pass for this one. Thank you everyone for the love! Stoked to bring home the gold pic.twitter.com/vxApf1lxbI— Chloe Kim (@chloekimsnow) February 13, 2018
A new Harris Poll set out to discover which Winter Olympic sports are the most popular with Americans, and let’s just say there’s a good reason NBC devotes a lot of TV time to figure skating. Overall, 63% of Americans plan to watch the Winter Olympic games, and 58% of adults say their favorite sport to watch is figure skating, followed by:
- Ski jumping (49%)
- Bobsledding (48%)
- Speed skating (47%)
- Snowboarding (43%)
