Maryland-Michigan State, Vanderbilt-Kentucky, Texas-Kansas lead cable sports TV ratings for Saturday January 23, 2016

 

Cable Sports TV Ratings for Saturday January 23, 2016:

This is sorted from most-watched to least-watched. Using your browser’s search tool (usually CTRL/CMD+F) might be the faster way to go if you’re looking for something specific.

Update: Apparently some data gaps in the report that I use to create the tables below and the U.S. Women’s National Soccer team’s friendly Ireland averaged 268K Sat 5:18-7:36p ET on FS1. The World Series of Fighting #27 (Ricci/Fodor) on NBCSN was missing. It averaged 213,000 viewers from 10p-midnight and then a replay from midnight-2a averaged another 111,000.

Note to readers using mobile phones: on most phones the tables are easier to read/scroll through if you tilt your phone to landscape orientation.

Note: viewership of around 100,000 or lower is technically what Nielsen refers to as a “scratch” i.e., not enough Nielsen panelists watched for Nielsen to validate it. There are around 40,000 homes in the Nielsen panel and a bit over 100,000 panelists, where 1 Nielsen panelist watching a whole telecast represents around 3,000 people.

But when there’s a show with 30,000 viewers, that’s only around 10 Nielsen panelists…
