College Football Playoff announcement show Scores 3.4 overnight rating



ESPN’s final CFP  (college football playoff) announcement show scored a 3.4 overnight household rating for the 12:30-1:00 p.m. portion of the telecast on Sunday where teams were announced. The full 2.5 telecast averaged a 1.6 rating.

You can’t figure out the exact number of viewers from the overnight household rating, but a 3.4 household rating equals nearly 4 million (3.96M) homes, so viewership will be at least a little higher than that when released on Tuesday.
