Sportstvratings.com numbers are just cable viewership. Adding in people with sat dishes or people streaming the games would be a lot more. People are cutting the cord more frequently now. I'd like to see data from WatchESPN viewers as well as the conference and school games available by streaming.


They include satellite.

They don't include streaming, but when streaming numbers are released they are always, in my experience, insignificant compared to the TV numbers. ESPN does announce them on occassion. And for last spring's NCAA men's basketball tournament, the NCAA published the numbers. There were 22 million TV viewers for the championship game alone. In contrast, the streaming video for the entire tournament, every game, totalled 3.4 million live video streams and 1.1 million live hours of video consumption. They said that the total for TV and online combined was over 41 million hours of viewing for the full tournament, of which only the 1.1 million was online.

That's a 40:1 ratio, and the CBS March Madness Online is one of the most long-standing and best established streaming sports media products. It's free for everyone, high quality, and has for years been the means for people to watch the tournament while at work, so if anything one would expect it to outperform most other streaming sources.


Satellite and UVerse/FIOS are included, but not OTT services like DirecTV Now, PS Vue, or Sling TV yet. As you said, data for streaming of simultaneously broadcast events still shows it to be pretty low even if it is growing. ESPN usually reports 1-2% and the Olympics were right around 1%. The NFL Twitter experiment was right around that figure too.

In the same 7-9pm slot, the MBB game between Duke and NCSt drew 1.316M (ESPN).

The first (8-9pm) hour of WWE Monday Night Raw drew 3.309M (USA).

The Knicks-Pacers game that began at 8 on TNT drew 976,000.

And demonstrating again what a black hole ESPNU is, the TCU-OU MBB game from 7-9 drew 87,000, which I think was the network's highest rated show of the day, so Dietsch could have added that to his list. Indeed ESPNU was worse than the three he named by at least a factor of 2.

Any predictions for most watched games tomorrow, as there are a bunch of nationally televised games.

UCLA @ Stanford 9 PM EST ESPN2
Texas @ Baylor 8 PM EST FS1
Louisville @ Notre Dame 7 PM ESPN2
Miami @ FSU 7 PM RSN
Ole Miss @ Florida 7 PM SECN

I'll go:
1. Louisville/ND
2. UCLA/Stanford
3. Ole Miss/Florida
4. Texas/Baylor
5. Miami/FSU

Texas/Baylor is the hard one to pick, FS1 ratings seem to be much lower than ESPN's of the world. But can two bad teams on SEC Network beat the Baylor/Texas game? SEC Network distribution is good whereas Raycom Sports/ACC is sort of a hodge podge of regional networks and I've heard complaints about lack of coverage, blackourts, and so forth.

There were more SEC Gymnastics matchups being covered, although I am not sure if they were live or delayed. The broadcast after the last ESPN2 basketball game on Sunday averaged 69,000 viewers and the one on ESPNU yesterday averaged 62,000 viewers.

2/12 Tulane vs South Florida ESPN2 106,000

2/12 Baylor vs TCU ESPN2 128,000
2/13 Texas vs FSU ESPN2 355,000
2/13 South Carolina vs UConn ESPN2 1,229,000

The last game (ESPN2 portion only) made it into the top 50 of cable broadcasts for the night in 18-49 rating, so we got some more demographic information than usual. Each number represents the average percentage of all people in that group who were watching.

18-49: .29
F18-49: .22
M18-49: .36
18-34: .22
F12-34: .12
M12-34: .27
25-54: .36
50+: .72

In terms of extra coverage on ESPNU, a replay of the Stanford game averaged 10,000 viewers, a replay of the FSU game averaged 24,000 viewers, and a replay of the Maryland game averaged 47,000 viewers. The averages for the three pieces on Geno were 38,000 then 40,000 then 45,000.

Tape-delayed SEC Gymnastics averaged 21,000 on ESPNU on Wednesday and live softball averaged 61,000 on ESPNU on Thursday.

Quote:
Top ranked UConn’s 66-55 milestone 100th-consecutive victory over No. 6 South Carolina on Monday, Feb. 13 (9 p.m. ET, ESPN2), delivered a 0.9 overnight rating, marking the highest-rated college basketball game on ESPN2 this season among men’s and women’s telecasts, and the highest-rated women’s college basketball regular-season game since 2010. Digitally, the game also attracted 69,000 unique viewers with a total of 1,700,000 minutes watched, which makes this matchup the most streamed women’s college basketball regular-season game to date televised by ESPN. The Big Monday matchup ties Tennessee vs. Duke (Jan. 23, 2006) as the fourth-highest regular-season women’s college basketball game across all ESPN networks.

Awhom, are you aware of any other college basketball situations like the men's ACC tournament where the same games are actually telecast by two different networks with separate cameras, announcing crews, the whole deal?

They have both a Raycom broadcast syndicated on local TV stations and it's on ESPN. But unlike what they do for sone ESPN carried NFL games, they're not sharing a single product and feed. (Personally I've mostly been watching the Raycom broadcasts.)

I guess there would be various issues in looking at ratings. To see the level of interest in the games, you need to sum the separate ratings, but to compare which source is doing better and for advertising purposes you need to look at them as separate shows I assume.

Just curious as to your thoughts.

Certainly seems like an expensive proposition of dubious value to duplicate everything. Nice as a fan to have a choice, though. Wish I could switch to a different network for the same game every time Doris Burke is announcing. Very Happy

It is interesting to use the dual tuners on DirecTV and be able to go back and see how the two networks dealt differently with the same on-court event. It's quite remarkable sometimes the differing viewpoints and emphasis.

I do not believe that any other similar situations exist, although I think that there have been a few in the past.

The is a vestige of the previous ACC deal in which Raycom was the primary rights holder and ESPN sub-licensed from them. For those that do not know, the ACC Men's Tournament and the first Duke-UNC game of each season have been on Raycom for a while. Before the current deal, they were the only available broadcast within the ACC footprint and ESPN was blacked out. Now we have a separate Raycom produced broadcast that is both syndicated on local stations (now only within the ACC footprint as opposed to right after the new TV deal when they were actually shown OTA all over the country) and also shown for free online worldwide. The choice of online feeds is great, especially with the day games and they have been available since before WatchESPN access was widespread.

This process was criticized by a lot of people, especially Duke and NC State fans, who believe that UNC alum commissioner Swofford forced ESPN to accept the terms of the sublicense due to familial ties to Raycom Media. The belief is that ESPN probably paid less than they would have if they had exclusive rights to those games. The official reason given, even in 2017, is that the ACC has a large number of longtime fans in rural areas without cable, especially in the state of North Carolina apparently. Apparently ending the decades old tradition of local broadcasts of the ACC Tournament would be detrimental. This all looks set to be eliminated once the ACC pay TV channel is established.

Ratings for these games are ESPN-only. One would have to look at local ratings of broadcast networks to determine the ACC Network ratings. The ACC Network ratings are big enough to have an impact on national broadcast network ratings, which is currently annoying some of the diehard entertainment programming ratings followers who I read regularly. Nielsen would sum the ratings if they were the same broadcast feed with the same commercials, like when CBS and NFL Network simulcast Thursday night games.

I guess we disagree on Doris Burke. I think she's above average among announcers of men's college basketball. I can't stand her on women's basketball at all though.

The tape-delayed version of College Basketball Live outdrew the live version, so I included both.

The Men's Basketball Selection Show averaged 4,883,000 viewers on CBS (which was down from last year's controversial elongated version) and the Ice Hockey on ESPNU averaged 68,000 viewers so I guess people like selection shows at least as much as they like watching the actual games.

Wrestling aired morning sessions on ESPNU and evening sessions on ESPN for three straight days. Thursday's averages were 60,000 and 303,000. Friday's averages were 73,000 and 443,000. Saturday's averages were 143,000 and 735,000. I guess we now understand why that is shown on the big channel at those times instead of Women's Basketball. Interestingly, Saturday's championship bouts not only hit the top 50 in 18-49 ratings, but had higher F12-34 ratings than M12-34 ratings.

If you wonder why the NIT also often takes precedence over Women's Basketball, Saturday's early game averaged 908,000 viewers. With smaller name teams on Sunday morning, it only averaged 354,000 which means that switching with the Ohio State-Kentucky game probably would have resulted in bigger ESPN ratings. The bigger name teams later averaged 424,000 on ESPN2 and then small names averaged 62,000 on ESPNU.

Some other assorted college sports from last week: A tape delayed recap of the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championship averaged 83,000 viewers. Live SWAC Softball averaged 22,000 viewers. ESPNU also had four Men's Lacrosse games, averaging 18,000 and 53,000 for live B1G games, 45,000 for a taped-delay airing, and 35,000 for a live ACC contest. Live SEC Baseball averaged 32,000 viewers and live coverage of the SEC Gymnastics Championship averaged 85,000 viewers.

Once again, thanks so much for doing this. Having actual data as opposed to just guessing makes for a much more informed discussion.

Well once again ESPN demonstrates both that they understand what draws, and that ratings trump the interests of the student athletes.

9 PM is lousy from the players' standpoint, and from that of the live spectators, but the 9pm Notre Dame -Purdue game drew the biggest TV audience.

One can't help but wonder whether being tired in part because of the late hour contributed to Brianna Turner injuring her knee.

But the "ratings" don't account for those watching online, or watching on alternative devices such as Sling, Roku, or Apple TV....let alone watching multiple games at once, or game-flipping.

Well once again ESPN demonstrates both that they understand what draws, and that ratings trump the interests of the student athletes.

9 PM is lousy from the players' standpoint, and from that of the live spectators, but the 9pm Notre Dame -Purdue game drew the biggest TV audience.

One can't help but wonder whether being tired in part because of the late hour contributed to Brianna Turner injuring her knee.


Why would Turner be tired?

This is the 2nd time I've read this sentiment from a Notre Dame fan. I empathize with the gut-wrenching turn of events- UCONN players have suffered their fair share of injuries over the years- but I doubt the 9 pm start had anything to do with it.

Stage 3 of the 7 stages?

But the "ratings" don't account for those watching online, or watching on alternative devices such as Sling, Roku, or Apple TV....let alone watching multiple games at once, or game-flipping.


Because they do publish those numbers on occasion and all the the streaming numbers combined are totally inconsequential in comparison to the cable numbers. Just not material to the discussion.

They will matter someday, but today they don't.

This has been discussed here before. Indeed, recently, with data.

3/20 Timeslot 1 ESPN2 751,000
3/20 Timeslot 2 ESPN2 586,000
3/20 Texas A&M vs UCLA ESPNU 92,000

The NIT averaged 597,000 and 592,000 on ESPN, so the network lost out there. They also averaged 66,000 on ESPNU before the women's game.

NCAA Men's Ice Hockey averaged 212,000 and 157,000 and 122,000 on Saturday and 135,000 and 95,000 on Sunday. A replay of the SEC Gymnastics Championship averaged 355,000 viewers. Live Men's Lacrosse averaged 68,000 and 87,000 viewers on ESPNU Saturday and a Sunday morning replay averaged 56,000. There was plenty of college baseball and softball on ESPN2 and ESPNU, averaging 199,000 and 175,000 and 109,000 on Saturday and 135,000 and 95,000 on Sunday.

We finally got enough viewers in the 18-49 demographic to get some more detailed ratings information. Each number is a percentage, meaning on average, that percent of that group was watching.

UCLA vs UConn
18-49: .29
F18-49: .21
M18-49: .37
18-34: .24
F12-34: .11
M12-34: .29
25-54: .39
50+: .94

Stanford vs Notre Dame
18-49: .23
F18-49: .12
M18-49: .34
18-34: .18
F12-34: .09

Mississippi State vs Baylor

18-34: .21

F18-49: .21
M18-49: .33
18-34: .21
F12-34: .14
M12-34: .24
25-54: .34
50+: .79

FSU vs South Carolina:
18-49: .23
F18-49: .20
M18-49: .26
18-34: .20
F12-34: .17
M12-34: .20
25-54: .31
50+: .71

I am interested in explanations for the two games that were not as male-skewed. Were there less casual male viewers in those timeslots? Were they more convenient viewing times for women? I still don't know what a proper ratio would be, but again it seems to be problematic to blame only men for people not watching.

Are most sporting event viewers so heavily skewed toward 50+?

That number really jumps out.

Not all, but it's not too out of range. In general, older people watch more TV than younger people.

awhom probably has the numbers, but I was curious about the second semifinal and found this..

Quote:
Mississippi State-UConn scored a 1.9 overnight rating in Friday’s Women’s Final Four on ESPN2, up 90% from Syracuse-Washington last year (1.0) and up 19% from UConn-Maryland on ESPN in 2015 (1.6), both of which aired on Sunday nights.

The Bulldogs’ last-second, overtime win peaked at a 2.7 from Midnight-12:15 AM ET.

Streaming numbers continue to creep up...the championship game drew more than the TV viewership of many regular season games on ESPNU, etc.

Quote:
The 2017 NCAA Women’s National Championship between No. 2-seeded Mississippi State and No. 1-seeded South Carolina (April 2, 2017 at 6 p.m.) delivered a 2.4 overnight on ESPN, with a streaming average audience of 59,500 viewers and a total of 211,000 viewers watching 8,205,000 minutes.

Actually that makes it look slightly worse. Those numbers are only around 1.6% of the television viewership and 2% is usually the expected standard.

Is that for WBB or sports in general? (I believe it's a higher percentage than the only other game reported in this thread)

I would think WBB streaming numbers may be below average in general considering the age skew in the viewership demographics.

I would use 2% as the standard baseline for sports in general. The WBB numbers usually are not big enough other than games like this. I tried to do an apples-to-apples comparison between the final and the UConn-South Carolina game using minutes and it looks like the difference is less than .1% although that game had weird circumstances thanks to Texas-FSU.

HBO's last episode's original run averaged 127,000 viewers.

The Men's Ice Hockey semifinals on ESPN2 on Thursday averaged 178,000 and 155,000 viewers.

D League playoffs on ESPNU averaged 15,000 and 13,000 viewers. There's a school of thought out there that there could be more interest in the league with marketing, but it seems like there would need to be a lot of work down. Both games featured multiple current NBA players, ex-NBA players, unsigned draft picks, and people who went to big name schools.
