Beijing Winter Olympics Sink 39% in TV Viewers From Pyeongchang

The Beijing Olympics, which held its closing ceremonies on Sunday, was also down in viewership from last summer’s Tokyo Olympics. Like Tokyo 2020/2021, the global COVID-19 pandemic impacted Beijing, where there again were pretty much no spectators allowed.
