PARIS — TF1, France’s leading commercial web, posted consolidated profits of E172.3 million ($221.2 million) for the first nine months of 2006, down 4.9% on the same period last year, on revenues up 5.8% to $2.4 billion.

Operating profit was down 20% to $249.7 million, as the high cost of the World Cup soccer rights kicked in.
