It depends on your opinion. Apparently, the top 3 for both type of the Olympics are as they are below:

Winter Olympics

#1: Women`s Figure Skating

#2: Half Pipe

#3: Pair Figure Skating

Summer Olympics

#1: Men`s Swimming

#2: Men`s Running

#3: Women`s Swimming

I see a pattern in that. Anyway I`ve researched and now can show a few more details.

Percentage of Women watching Winter Olympics: 82%

Percentage of Women watching Summer Olympics: 84%

Percentage of Men watching Winter Olympics: 73%

Percentage of Men watching Summer Olympics: 64%

Percentage of Girls watching Winter Olympics: 45%

Percentage of Girls watching Summer Olympics: 11%

Percentage of Boys watching Winter Olympics: 27%

Percentage of Boys watching Summer Olympics: 36%

Winter Olympics are more popular, and so that means Women`s Figure Skating is the hottest Olympic sport.

After comparing this all to that all, I`ve noticed what is most popular. But most popular->hottest, so it`s "hottest", as some people say. I, myself, prefer Pair Figure Skating, but people can think what they want.

Luge->not as popular as->mens figure skating->not as popular as->womens figure skating

Pair Figure skating falls in about 4th place for Winter Olympics. Luge is about 7th though.
