ESPN’s 1st-Round NFL Draft Overnight Rating down 25% from 2014


Not that we didn’t see it coming but the overnight household rating (measuring the top 56 markets out of 210) for ESPN’s first round coverage of the NFL Draft fell 25% from 2014’s record-setting 6.8 rating to a 5.1 rating.

That 5.1 was still better than the overnight for 2013 & 2012, but short of 2010 (5.4) which had been the record prior to last year.

Viewership numbers for both ESPN and NFL Network should be available sometime after 4pm ET.
