Raiders-Celebrate-20-Yards-Back

The Raiders tried their best to lose to the Chiefs, but their win still easily led the cable sports nets on Thursday. I haven’t seen the deep dive yet, if I do, I’ll replace the table below with it.

Note: viewership of around 100,000 or lower is technically what Nielsen refers to as a “scratch” i.e., not enough Nielsen panelists watched for Nielsen to validate it. There are around 20,000 homes in the Nielsen panel and a bit over 50,000 panelists, where 1 Nielsen panelist watching a whole telecast represents around 5,800 people.  So something averaging a million viewers averaged around 170 people out of the 50K+ panel — small, but still statistically significant. But when there’s a show with 30,000 viewers, that’s only around 5 or 6 Nielsen panelists…
