Re: Playoff Wk - TV Ratings and Predictions

PHI/NJ went first in week 10 then first in Canton, you explain it then. My prediction would have solved every angle and probably delivered around 1.4 mil. So instead of fretting about Stars/Stallions against a Phillies team a couple games over .500, call them out for totally cowering to a potential...

Re: SBJ: Fox, NBC pleased with USFL

Right, they want subscribers. And despite their national TV ratings, MLS is positioned to deliver. USFL can sleepwalk to respectable broadcast ratings, but they wouldn't be able to move the needle for a paid platform. (Just ask Peacock.) Because they are different. And that's OK. They both have thi...

Re: Playoff Wk - TV Ratings and Predictions

These are preliminary and can go up or down (they usually do). I said putting NOLA/Birm on at primetime vs NJ/Philly was going to cost 500k viewers. I'm sticking to that. Two very small markets vs two very large markets was silly IMO. I think Fox didn't want it to compete with its own Fox MLB Satur...

Re: Something I didn’t expect to see…espn running USFL highlights

That is one of the advantages of playing football in June—the college sports season (as well as the NHL and NBA) is over so you only have baseball, CFL and MLS. ESPN has the CFL, but 9 teams is far less than the 300 D-I basketball programs. SportsCenter during the MLB all-star break has always amus...
