ESPN led, but FS1 easily topped ESPN2 among cable sports networks for the week ending February 22, 2015

 

We imagine that when FS1 launched that its sights weren’t set on dethroning the ESPN mothership but rather on giving ESPN2 a run for its money.

On that front FS1 hasn’t really been particularly competitive, but fueled by NASCAR coverage at Daytona and decent UFC performance on Sunday, FS1 easily outpaced ESPN2 for the week both in primetime and on a total day basis.
