ESPN2’s “First Take” still down from last year, still easily beating “America’s Fastest-Growing Sports Talk Show”


Another update to the original post that includes data through Thursday, November 17, 2016.

“First Take” is still easily winning but is down nearly 35% since Labor Day versus 2015. “Undisputed” still hasn’t quite shed all of the new viewers it picked up during the Chicago Cubs LDS and LCS playoff runs, but it has lost enough of them already to make FS1’s “Fastest-growing sports talk show” schtick amusing. “Undisputed” did pick up a few viewers on Tuesday, November 15 when “First Take” didn’t air do to NCAA basketball coverage.
