ESPN leads as always but NBCSN again 2nd in primetime in cable sports network rankings for the week ending May 3, 2015


ESPN as ever led the rankings across-the-board, and aided by the first round of the NFL Draft, even a bit more comfortably so than normal. The remaining two days of draft coverage on ESPN2 allowed it to squeak past NBC Sports Network in total day rankings,  but aided by the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs, NBCSN had a comfortable hold of second-place in primetime over the NFL Network and ESPN2, despite the NFL Draft.
