ViggleSM (OTCBB:VGGL), the popular loyalty program for television, released the results of an Olympic survey today that polled Viggle users who have been glued to their TV since the start of this year’s Games.
“Viggle users are obviously fanatical about sports and have clearly been enjoying the Summer Games”
“Viggle users are obviously fanatical about sports and have clearly been enjoying the Summer Games,” said Chris Stephenson, president of Viggle. “They’ve shared hilarious insights, opinions and deep thoughts with us via this survey and our daily Viggle LIVE events.”
Key points from the Viggle research include:
When asked which Olympian they might leave their spouse for, 61% of men and 60% of women proudly said they weren’t interested
76% believe Michael Phelps to be the greatest Olympian ever
36% of respondents said Andy Murray’s triumph over Roger Federer has been the biggest surprise of the games; the cheating that occurred in badminton came in a close second at 31%
Although inspired by the Olympics overall, 75% confided that after watching track & field events they’d still rather sleep in than go for a run the next morning
Asked which Olympic sport they would like to compete in, 17% of Viggle users said badminton, 16% said table tennis and 12% shocked the judges by choosing rhythmic gymnastics
