Imo these numbers exemplify the niche/minor reality of WCB.

How in the world does the first game draw only 25,000 more than the 2nd?!


Add in that the UConn South Carolina blowout outdrew both together.

I am happy to see so many more women’s games on TV this year compared to prior years. In this past week alone, I watched all or parts of at least 20 different games. That is in addition to driving out to Sioux Falls to watch a Summit league game. The unfortunate thing is that although there are plenty of Big 10 women’s games televised, we never get to see the U of MN on TV. Not even away games. And we can’t watch them online either, without paying for a service, which I will not do.

No BTN at all as part of your package? I could have sworn Minnesota had at least one TV game. Like, on an actual-facts TV channel, not this bullshit BTN "you aren't paying enough for cable programming, you know?" Plus.

But overall, it's been amazing. Streaming as a full-fledged service on par with television still needs time, resources, maybe separate bandwidth, and the preservation of net neutrality- but as an appendage of ESPN, or FS, it's been amazing.

This season the Gophers played 4 games of the conference season on the Big Ten Network.

In the Big Ten Tournament, they played their first game on Fox Sports North and their next game on the Big Ten Network.

But this season you should be able to watch them in the NCAA Tournament on some form of ESPN.

You could have watched the early season game at San Diego online for free, but that was a missable game... worst loss of the season.

I wish I had known when they were on during the season, because I would have watched them. During the tournament, it was possibly because we were out in Sioux Falls for the Summit league tournament. (Have to support our girl first, before the home team...). We did watch som BIG tourney games though.

The selection show averaged 639,000 viewers on ESPN.

Here are some demographic groups and their average percentage viewing the game at a given time:
18-49: .20
F18-49: .10
M18-49: .31
18-34: .20
F12-34: .04
M12-34: .28
25-54: .20
50+: .30

It is interesting comparing that to the Men's Selection Show. Obviously that had more viewers, but the ratio of female to male viewers for the age groups we have is way higher than for the Women's show (.57 vs 1.01 for 18-49 and .33 vs .70 for 12-34).

The Men's NIT Selection Show averaged 192,000 viewers.

Are the high percentages of 50+ viewers common to all sports?

Of course, older folks like me watch more TV (hence the many medical ads for diseases that are never specified), but does women's basketball skew older than other kinds of programming, sports and otherwise?

Yes, virtually all sports skew old, although Women's Basketball is probably a little older than most of the others.

Most TV skews old except for niche comedies. Even "teen dramas" tend to rate better among older viewers.

As an example, here are some ratings for American Idol and the Voice from their head to head battle this Monday:

Voice
2-11: .80
12-34: .97
35-49: 3.19
50+: 6.51

American Idol:
2-11: .76
12-34: 1.06
35-49: 2.28
50+: 4.51
