ESPN leads but FS1 beats ESPN2 in cable sports network rankings for the week ending April 19, 2015

 

As usual, ESPN came out on top across-the-board. But aided by 4 hours of NASCAR coverage that got bumped from the Fox broadcast network due to a rain delay and a somewhat slow week, Fox Sports 1 won out over ESPN2.

In primetime both NBC Sports Network (helped by NHL) and MLB Network  beat out ESPN2 in total viewers.
