Sugar Bowl, Rose Bowl, Cotton Bowl lead cable sports networks for Thursday January 1, 2015

 

Sure, it’s old news by now that the Sugar Bowl college football playoff between Ohio State and Alabama was the most-watched program on the cable sports networks with 28.271 million and that the Rose Bowl between Florida State and Oregon was right behind it averaging 28.164 million. But we’re trying to get back on track with the posting.  ESPN started the year off right with those two games marking the two most-watched programs in cable television history.

The Cotton Bowl where Michigan State beat Baylor averaged 9.086 million.

The Outback Bowl where Wisconsin beat Auburn in overtime averaged 6.417 million on ESPN2.

Premier League action between Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea on NBC Sports Network averaged 631,000 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…
