TV Ratings - Week 7

Latest from David Barron has us doing a 4.6 against Tulsa on ESPN2. Only game that beat ours in the Houston area was Alabama at Tennessee on CBS. More people watched our game than the Ohio State-Wisconsin game that we were head to head against and featured 2 Top 10 teams while being on ABC. The Cincy game was also bumped up to a 6.8 from a 6.7.

Will be interesting to see if OU-UH can hold the top spot after this weekend.

The Big 12 is clearly dead to the Houston market. I honestly don’t know how the little 8 will be able to get a kid of quality out of Houston.

It is clearly a SEC and University of Houston market now.t

We keep talking about the Houston area being dead to the BigXII market and being an SEC market. I think the problem is not the BigXII, but ESPN. Houston is still an ESPN market, and until ESPN suffers a ratings drop in Houston, or they see they can get a significant bump in Houston by adding UH to a prestigous conference, we will be left out.

You are right there is no incentive for ESPN to move Houston to the Big 12. There is, however, A HUGE incentive for ESPN to force the Big schools to play us out of conference. The Houston OU game was a ratings monster, can you imagine Texas v Houston?

Wow! B12-2 are mostly at the bottom. @Coog51 You should work for ESPN, that just might blow their mind. So easy to comprehend! I personally don’t get them.

UH vs Texas St. on ESPNU beat a primetime TCU vs Arky on ESPN… that tells you everything you need to know about Big12 interest in Houston.

We never got UH at Navy ratings right because CBSCS blows or something like that?

I’d be interested to see how all these specific games did nationally as well.

I do not work in this business, but would this not be grounds to tell the network, see this? Where is my piece for making you rich?

Right; CBSSports isn’t tracked by Nielsen.

Anyone know why that is? Are they, CBSSports, just that cheap?

Not enough viewers.

just noticed the name of the file is Big 12-2.:joy::joy::joy:


Redid it and included national ratings, average viewers, and times:

Here’s the reasoning for more viewers for the Texas-ND game from David Barron:
Oddly enough, OU-UH had a higher rating than the Notre Dame-Texas game Sunday night at 11.5, but because the Texas game went longer, it had a higher average total viewership at 419,000 to 407,000 for the Cougars’ game.
