This post is a week late because TV Media Insights didn’t have its numbers for last Sunday until today, and TVbytheNumbers never put up Saturday numbers at all, which is okay because TVMI included several college football games from the afternoon. If I had numbers from Sports Media Watch for daytime broadcast games, I’d roll this post into this week. I did incorporate household ratings (and in one case, all the numbers) for cable college football games from the weekly Awful Announcing posts. Numbers for ABC and Fox primetime college football games from the weekend I’m only certain of to the ten thousands place, as TV Media Insights listed all shows on the Big Four networks Saturday with a multiple of ten thousand viewers.

NFL Network seems to be seeing some lasting impact from CBS’ coverage of Thursday Night Football. Both of the NFLN-exclusive games we’ve seen so far improved on the same week last year and Chiefs-Raiders did not, so take this with a grain of salt, but NFLN has seen year-on-year gains in primetime of at least 23% and total day of 18% each of the past two weeks.

Finally, I went with a Top 25 for this week’s month-old ratings in part because I wasn’t quite sure what parts of HBO’s boxing card to include. UniMas actually attracted more viewers than ESPN for the USA-Honduras friendly, surprising for a match involving the US but not Mexico.
