Olympics Survey Results

Thanks to those of you who completed our Summer Olympics survey. In the weeks ahead – leading up to and during the Games – our goal is to focus on the Olympics-related information that’s of greatest interest to you. Your input on the survey will help us do just that. In the meantime, here are some highlights from the survey results:

  • Nearly 70 percent of respondents plan to watch the Olympics either often or very often.
  • Virtually all (93 percent) plan to watch the Games live on TV.
  •  A sizable majority (74 percent) plan to watch the opening ceremonies on Friday, July 27.
  • Three Olympic sports emerged as favorites: gymnastics, track and field, and swimming/diving.
  • Of those who don’t plan to watch the Games, most will opt instead for TV comedies and dramas.

Thanks again for your participation.
