Cable Sports TV Ratings for Tuesday November 18, 2014

 

UK-KS

Technically, the 19 minute pregame for Kansas vs. Kentucky led all the cable sports networks on Tuesday, but the two-hour and ten minute Kansas vs. Kentucky blowout led “real” sports followed by Michigan St vs. Duke.

Table is sorted from most-viewed to least-viewed today and it looks like the data received today didn’t include anything that “scratched” (too few Nielsen panelists for Nielsen to validate the numbers).

Below the first table is a table w/just the data for the college basketball games received.

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…
