Ohio State-Virginia Tech football, U.S. Open Tennis lead cable sports TV ratings for Monday September 7, 2015

 

Sadly, another Monday where I got a limited set of the cable sports nets’ numbers. I’m including what I have below. Ohio State/Virginia Tech definitely led the cable sports nets (and all of cable) regardless.

ESPN mashed the 11:30p-midnight SportsCenter with the midnight-1:01a SportsCenter (Scott Van Pelt’s midnight debut) and recorded it as a 91 minute SportsCenter that averaged 2.155 million viewers.

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 20,000 homes in the Nielsen panel and a bit over 50,000 panelists, where 1 Nielsen panelist watching a whole telecast represents around 5,800 people.  So something averaging a million viewers averaged around 170 people out of the 50K+ panel — small, but still statistically significant. But when there’s a show with 30,000 viewers, that’s only around 5 or 6 Nielsen panelists…
