Here's the reason why its popularity is decreasing dramatically: Humans are getting smarter. It's all genes. Why would you root for someone who was just fortunate enough to be born with better genetics? They're introducing additional sports to gain popularity, and esports will be added eventually.

Why the location of olympics will make it any more boring ?
2021-07-27 17:56
your reason sounds very, very childish and does not reflect the reality at all. The actual reason for declining numbers is the fact that people DO NOT accept MEN competing with WOMEN

TV ratings have gone down past 10 years because people don't watch TV, but that's got nothing to do with the popularity of the event

it's true that viewership was lower at the opening ceremony (which makes sense bc it was so boring due to covid restrictions) but as the article also points out: "So far, viewers have streamed 21% more minutes of the Tokyo Olympics than they did the Rio games in 2016."

not a good viewership for a event that was at 5am pdt compared to 4pm pdt in Rio 5 years ago? Wow i cant imagine why that would happen.
2021-07-27 18:20
Opening ceremony is boring anyways
2021-07-27 20:20
I think Olympic should be free to watch event + the timezones are not perfect aswell. This are 2 of the major reasons why is it bad.

In denmark a lot of events are "free to watch" since they are on "DR" which is a statefunded channel (taxes pay for it so no adds and free streaming online) but note that it is far from all events but it works for me

1. Olympics lose profit by making it free + with no spectators theres no chance they even considered making all broadcasts free 2. They're not gonna force athletes to play at times like 2-3am just so its beneficial for viewers in the US

idk, i believe people need time to recover from covid. No spectators, bubble for athletes and etc...Its feels like scuffed Olympics at least for me...
2021-07-27 14:24
My way to see that is because the olympics were supposed to happen last year and the pandemic fucked everything, so it basically flopped, every one were so busy resolving other problems that very few people care about it right now. I actually like the olympics in general, I hope for a better "world situation" for the next one

Time zone a lot of events happen in 3 am soo how can i be interested if i am sleeping
2021-07-27 14:31
Surely popularity is going down yes, especially when we consider timezone for competition is as poor as it is for many people it makes things seem even worse. Also there is also the fact that there is more and more competition over people's time in form of entertainment and olympics aren't very high in many peoples interest anymore. Only expect competitions like this get less and less popular in the future.

I dont think it will go less and less. This year its peak summer in most of the world. People are enjoying their time after Covid. Even tho its not over, but still people get to go outside and take a fresh breath. People are tired of corona and they need a break. The timezones doesnt help either. And on top of that nowadays people use Internet/Laptop rather than TV to watch it. So alot of people dont wanna pay money for just Olympics. Even I wanted to watch it but cause of Timezones/money I cant.

It's time zones and the fact that no or almost no live audience makes it less exciting. The popularity of the olympics itself is not decreasing, it is still a much beloved event. TV ratings go down because fewer people watch TV

2018 in Korea and now Japan the timezones are just so bad to watch from here

Idk I tuned in a few times but honestly the German broadcast is shit bcs they usually switch sports mid match and only show a little bit of each so of ye wanna watch something and u get into it they suddenly swap to some other crap and also a lot of the sports they do are not good to watch really.

You can watch pretty much everything live online in their mediathek, there are several streams going on at the same time. It's obvious that the main cast gives you a rough overview of the olympics
2021-07-27 17:52
boycotting the olympics full corrrupt drug-filled nonsense that serves no purpose in modern society
2021-07-27 18:07
It gets lower for the same reason why football loses viewers. Corrupt shit and you see how a few people get richer by selling everything out. Actually Something that valve also already did in Dota. When they fired 2GD. To suck China dick Gaben fired literally the best host in Dota history because the guy was like a normal guy in twitch chat... Now they make their hair and talk literally every time the same shit. Also, a reason why I don't watch Dota. And I mainly watch CS because of German streams. If sth gets big there always the assholes come in and destroy it.

Lmao, it's definitely right-wing conservatives that don't want video games in the Olympics not leftists.
2021-07-27 19:17
Its because Olympic games are disgusting corrupt bullshit that only servers as propaganda for its host, athletes get almost nothing for their medals menawhile olympic officials are milionaires. Its funny to see all journalists that normaly call for justice to be silent because media are on the olympic paycheck.
