The site that used to have these every day no longer does, so we will only get numbers for big games.

Stanford-UConn averaged 382,000 viewers.

Xfinity cable has stopped labeling CBB games as "men's" or "women's" saying their app can't cope with all that info. Rolling Eyes

So it's not on the Xfinity TV guide, either. Surprised

Hurrah for hoopfeed.com.

Know what else I couldn't figure out for the life of me, no matter how hard I searched?
What were the ratings for this year's NC title game? Were they up or down from previous years?

254,000
246,000
210,000

If volleyball were scored differently, I think it would be a great game for TV, but because the length of the matches varies so widely, ESPN and the other networks can't really deal with it effectively.

That's basketball's saving grace -- you pretty much know how long the games will be and TV can plan accordingly.

Right on cue, the NCAA women's volleyball semifinals were on tonight. They allotted two hours for the first semi, thirty minutes between matches, and then two hours for the second.

Nebraska beat PSU in a very exciting first semfinal match. Great TV entertainment, but it went five sets and consequently ran a full hour over the allotted time. The second semi now won't start until 10:30 Eastern time, and probably won't end until around 1 am or maybe later.

The wide variation in time depending on how many sets are played wreaks havock with TV schedules ( and viewer DVRs).

Now soccer and hockey, they're pretty predictable most of the time.

The change to quarters and reduction in time outs has resulted in WCBB games typically ending within the two hour window. For the men's games you still need to add 30 minutes to your recording schedule.

One thing about volleyball...it comes across very well on television, in terms of seeing the skill level of women's volleyball players. It does not look all that different from the men's game; both look highly skilled.

Women's basketball, on the other hand, comes across as "less skilled" that the men's game. Yes, some of that is the "under the rim" nature of the game. But missed layups, turnovers, the crowded paint, etc. does not come across as being in the same sphere as the men's game.

Whereas women's volleyball looks like women playing the same sport as men, women's basketball looks like a completely different sport.

An interesting point, but I wouldn't push it too far. When I watch men play volleyball, it's stunning how hard they hit the ball. I'm surprised more people don't get hurt ...

I used to have to try to dig those, although obviously not at that high a level (Bentley started their team while I was in high school).

The female to male ratio for these volleyball games interests me.

The first semifinal averaged 784,000 viewers. Here are some demographic groups and their average percentage viewing the game at a given time:
18-49: .24
F18-49: .18
M18-49: .30
18-34: .23
F12-34: .18
M12-34: .24
25-54: .24
50+: .37

The second semifinal averaged 491,000 viewers and here are the same breakdowns:
18-49: .20
F18-49: .19
M18-49: .20
18-34: .19
F12-34: .15
M12-34: .17
25-54: .19
50+: .19

The studio show between the two actually averaged 584,000 viewers which was higher than both semifinals last year. Here are the breakdowns:
18-49: .20
F18-49: .19
M18-49: .21
18-34: .19
F12-34: .19
M12-34: .16
25-54: .18
50+: .25

Obviously we do not have this level of detail for all basketball games, but we had quite a few in last year's thread. There were a couple games that had equal or greater female viewership in the available demographic groups, but generally speaking, male viewership, especially in the 12-34 age group was far greater, sometimes more than double. All of the volleyball games that I have paid attention to seem to have a pretty solid female audience compared to male audience in the younger groups and the audience itself seems to be younger than basketball.
