    It’s the game times. 10pm start times are tough for east coasters.

    for perspective....

    When Roseanne returned on ABC, the first episode delivered a staggering 18.2 million viewers and a 5.1 rating among adults 18-49 in the overnight Nielsens.

    This was skewed a bit, it came on right after an Alabama-Tennessee game, and most of the fans thought she was gonna get nude.

    Ohio State playing Northwestern is what brought the B1G CCG ratings down. I'm a big fan of Fitz and what he's done there but, despite being in the Chicago area, it's got the smallest fanbase in the B1G.

    The 2017 B1G CCG drew an 11.5.

    There is a whole bunch of reading to be done between those lines. Can't help but wonder how many tuned into the Bama and tOSU games hoping to watch them lose.

    No doubt. I watched many ND games in the 70s-80s for that reason, and always watched the Lakers in the NBA playoffs during the Magic Johnson era for the same.

    Would have thought LSU/Miami or Washington/ Auburn would be in the top 10.

    Or Clemson A&M

    OP, didn't give any sources either. Probably just made it all up.

    Only watched one from start to finish. Tillmanites won it, but man....I’d heard all year about this all-powerful defense, & dern if they didn’t give up close to a half a mile of offense & 5 touchdowns. <insert “overrated” chant>

    Most games are telecast regionally so it would be hard to give a lot of credence to polls or tallies

    4 of the Top 10 were Ohio State games.

    There goes the "picks are made for ratings" argument.

    Ohio St is such a huge brand. Every year you see them in multiple top 10 games.

    I think UCF is declaring themselves the viewership champion.

    Meh ... popularity and fan-base size has more to do with it than anything. Of course, fan-base size correlates with population.

    But if I remember right, approximately the 3rd and 4th biggest tv markets who watched the Ohio State vs TCU game were in Oklahoma and Alabama.

    I bet you could total the viewership of both UCF/Memphis games and it still wouldn’t be more than the PACs 25th game.

    You can see the small difference between the PAC Championship game and the AAC Championship, only about 0.7mil.

    ...but then the massive gap between the AAC and all the other G conferences. Next closest is 2.3mil back, and that was between the MW’s 2 biggest brands in Boise State and Fresno State.

    This is why we tout P6. We’re closer to the P conferences than we are to the G...
