Radio interview 1 of many just finished, I cant recall ever the darts being so popular, unreal interest from the mainstream media, well done the 96 players, the @OfficialPDC and all its broadcast partners and of course our 2 finalist @MvG180 & @BullyBoy180 its been epic."


From Chris Mason on fb.

On BBC news this morning the semi final results were on the news feed at the bottom of screen.

interest on the up.
Meanwhile, the sounds in the Netherlands were a bit different. Barney's early exit meant the amount of viewers dropped. That's a little bit of a concern. Van Gerwen can't make up for Barney's popularity (and status as the godfather of Dutch darts) so far.
I’m sure when he’s easily beaten his world title haul they will get behind him more.
MVG has already doubled barneys haul , and on target to make it 3 world titles for MVG.

Be interesting to see the German viewing figures, nothing spectacular from them unlike Münch last year, but Hopp finally did something earlier in the year and played van Gerwen

Think there will still be a good 3-4million watching in Europe tonight. Uncle Barry was hinting about the growth of (non) linear platforms and the way that has enhanced darts.

Giving BBC America streaming rights in the US and them putting on their YouTube channel must massively increase viewers. Although notionally geoblocked to US the restrictions can be easily circumvented with the most basic VPNs unlike the BBC, Netflix and Amazon

Can you show us the viewing figures?
Semi Finals figures were 971.000, the final will definitely be 1M+

What are semi-final figures normally like on Dutch TV? And how do they compare with finals?

Tried to find the article I read about the broadcasting-figures. It contained comments from Van der Giessen (you'll probably know him) as well. So far I failed, even with some help of Google. I remember the article stated most evening sessions the amount of viewers exceeded just 300.000, after Barneys exit. But I can't remember the comparing figures of last year.

Luckily now with MvG's success the figures have become a lot better. I think it should exceed 1,3-1,5m tonight.
To survive, is to be victorious!

Semi final night had the word Aspinall Smith Van Gerwen Anderson and pdc trending during parts of the night on Twitter.

Unreal amount of interest, Smith has the same number of tweets as football related tweets at one point

That is as good a reason as any to be supporting Bullyboy tonight. I also have bet Michael Smith to win, but only at 14/1 ew.

Various things on tonight:
- 35 or more 180s @ 5/1 (WH)
- Both to have 15 or more 180s @ 13/8 (Betfair)
- Both to average 100 or more and have at least 12 180s each @ 6/4 (Hills)

Also done a complicated ton plus checkouts arb between Hills and Spreadex but too complicated to explain here.

Smith looks shedded though MVG looks intensely focused.
This could be over in minutes(even 7-6). Probably be more advert time than game ;)
