‘Pardon The Interruption’ Viewership for 2014

 

During the holiday lull, we figured why not post something ridiculous like a table with the whole year* of PTI telecasts?

Some tidbits before the table:

  • Most-watched PTI episode of the season was 1.541 million on Tuesday, April 29
  • Least-watched was 350,000 on Wednesday, September 10 (got bounced to ESPN News)
  • PTI had a million or more viewers 87 times out of ~225 telecasts

The table below is the 5:30-6p premiere telecast, regardless which ESPN network that aired on, and with a couple of exceptions* has every telecast of the year.

*We hadn’t yet seen the ratings for the year-end recap show that aired at 5:30p on 12/24/14 at the time of publication, but it averaged 1.14 million viewers. At least once that we know of  — September 8, due to the MNF kickoff doubleheader– the show premiered an hour earlier. That’s not in the table, but at 4:30p on ESPN2 it drew 355,000 viewers.
