Nets' TV Ratings Plummet
Monday, April 21, 2008
It was only two years ago that the Nets beat the Knicks in local television ratings for the first time. But even with the Knicks having their worst season ever, the Nets’ ratings on YES were the worst for any NBA team on a regional sports network. The Nets only averaged .44 rating, a 41% decline. That works out to an average audience of about 30,000 households. The Knicks dropped 31% to a 0.98 mark, meaning the Knicks’ local TV audience was still more than twice as big as the Nets this season.
I am not surprised - I was one of those fans who stopped tuning in. Can't help it - by the time the All-Star Weekend came around, their focus was all but gone, and so was mine. Via NetsDaily.
