https://www.sportsmediawatch.com/2021/05/wnba-ratings-opening-weekend-nine-year-high-abc/

The WNBA scored two of its three largest regular season audiences in the past nine years with Saturday’s opening weekend ABC doubleheader.

Saturday’s Sky-Mystics WNBA regular season game averaged a 0.39 rating and 611,000 viewers on ABC, marking the league’s largest regular season audience in nine years — since Lynx-Mercury on the opening weekend of the 2012 season, also on ABC (804K). The previous high was 599,000 for a Wings-Mercury game on ABC last summer.

Chicago’s win, which marked the Sky debut of F Candace Parker, ranks as the most-watched WNBA game of any kind since the 2018 All-Star Game (709K) and topped every WNBA Finals game since Game 5 of the 2017 series (902K). Last year’s top Finals game, Seattle’s clinching Game 3 win over Las Vegas, averaged 570,000 on ESPN.

Later in the day, a rematch of that Storm-Aces final averaged a 0.39 and 598,000 on ABC — the league’s third-largest regular season audience since 2012. The average of 605,000 for Saturday’s doubleheader surpassed last year’s opening weekend games by 25%. Last year’s opening weekend took place in late July and included Sparks-Mercury (540K) and Sky-Aces (432K) on ABC.

The usual ratings site stopped having them, but SpoilerTV apparently bit the bullet and subscribed to some.

Here are some numbers from the season so far:
6/1 Phoenix-Chicago ESPN 158,000
6/20 New York-Los Angeles ESPN 151,000
6/27 Seattle-Las Vegas ESPN 338,000
6/29 Connecticut-Washington ESPN2 124,000
7/4 Atlanta-Las Vegas NBATV 62,000
7/4 Seattle-Los Angeles NBATV 62,000
7/7 Dallas-Minnesota ESPN2 130,000
7/9 Seattle-Phoenix ESPN 221,000
7/14 All Star Game ESPN 470,000

Numbers are average viewership as estimated by Nielsen's sample.

Pretty horrible compared to the other ABC games, which is what you get when you counter-program against the NFL's opening day. There may not be a 100% fan crossover, but it's clearly enough to make a big impact.

That's also a very lackluster matchup, to be fair.
