It's not the Botano, Witt, Gordieva and Grinkov Calgary era. Yuzuru Hanyu won gold in back-to-back Olympics. I don't think anyone on this board knows who he is.

I just looked up ratings. I went back and compared the two Thursdays. Figure skating reruns got 8.5M on NBC (the controversial women's singles). Men's halfpipe got 11.1M a week earlier.
Perhaps it seemed bigger in the past simply because the Olympics were smaller.
