ESPN of course dominated cable sports networks for week ending December 7, 2014

With Thanksgiving in the rear view mirror, NBC Sports Network easily beat the Golf Channel in primetime this week, and while it trailed Fox Sports 1 in primetime, on a total day basis, NBC Sports Network fared better for the week.

ESPN (as ever) dominates cable sports networks for week ending November 30, 2014

ESPN (of course) dominates sports networks for week ending November 9, 2014

Not much new under the sun  when it comes to ESPN. More interesting perhaps to focus on how unhappy NBC Sports Network must be that it’s losing to NBA TV.
