Cardinals/Rams, Cavs/Thunder Lead Cable Sports TV Ratings for Thursday December 11, 2014

 

It seemed as dreadful of a game as the 12-6 score indicated, and indeed the 7.67 million viewers was down from last week’s Cowboys beatdown of the Bears on NFL Network which drew 9.11 million.

But Cardinals-Rams still easily led all cable sports networks (and all of cable for that matter) in viewers and adults 18-49 (2.4) rating.

Cavs/Thunder averaged 2.31 million viewers and Rockets/Kings averaged 1.298 million viewers.

This is sorted from most-watched to least-watched. Using your browser’s search tool (usually CTRL/CMD+F) might be the faster way to go if you’re looking for something specific.

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…
