Michigan State-Alabama, Oklahoma-Clemson CFP Semifinals lead cable sports TV ratings for Thursday December 31, 2015

 

Note: the table below not only lacks the context of how much the New Year’s Eve CFP Semifinals dropped versus last year’s New Year’s Day games (around 40% between the two games), there’s also at least a little data missing from the table — one that jumped out at me was the 12 minute ESPN studio show between the two semifinals which averaged 18.09 million viewers but for whatever reasons wasn’t in the report I use to make the table.  Update: lack of including ‘Breakfast with Fedor” on Spike wasn’t about missing data, I’m just not used to looking at Spike’s #s on Thursday, it averaged 141,000 viewers from 10a ET-12:48p ET. 

Cable Sports TV Ratings for Thursday December 31, 2015:
