Thirteen plus years of 200+ episodes a year and still going strong! If you watch the cable sports networks ratings on a regular basis it’s not lost on you that Pardon the Interruption is one of ESPN’s best performers. Mondays through Fridays where no live sporting event was telecast, and even on some days when there are, PTI usually leads viewership for ESPN. But on a quick look through 10 December…
Lakers/Spurs on ESPN led all the sports cable nets on Friday with 2.17 million viewers.
Fox’s late afternoon national game (mostly San Francisco-Seattle) drew a 16.9 overnight.
a 12.3 household rating/24 share.
The Dallas Cowboys’ victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football averaged a 14.9 overnight household rating with a 24 share, the best since week 1’s Colts-Broncos matchup
Everyone loves a winner.
The America vs. Tigres match reached 4.8 million viewers who watched all or part of the broadcast and averaged 2.2 million viewers from 9:24-11:32p.
It seemed as dreadful of a game as the 12-6 score indicated, and indeed the 7.67 million viewers was down from last week’s Cowboys beatdown of the Bears on NFL Network which drew 9.11 million.
