Default 2016 UK NFL TV Ratings

Old threads going back the last 5 years... http://forum.nfluk.com/showthread.php?t=106588

No numbers from Barb in Week 1. Week 2 shows 67,000 for Steelers v Bengals in the early game. Seahawks v Rams got less than 26,000. On Sky Sports Mix across 6 hours Red Zone averaged 21,000 which is pretty good.

For Week 3 in the States the numbers continue their downward trend. Last night's game was the lowest SNF Cowboys game since 2010 (v Packers).

Do we know how that compares to previous years games?

EDIT:

Found them on the old thread-
Jets v Dolphins - BBC2 290,000
Bills v Jaguars - BBC2 381,000; Sky Sports 3 did not feature in top ten so at least less than 25,000
Lions v Chiefs - BBC Red Button 26,000; Sky Sports 2 53,000

Week 3 on Sky Sports

Redskins v Giants got 64,000
Steelers v Eagles got 29,000

Red Zone on Sky Sports Mix got 23,000 over the 6 hours. Again pretty good number. The late game on Sky Sports 2 is performing badly so far this season by comparison.

Separately Mark Waller spoke with Albert Breer of MMQB (formerly nfl.com) and claimed the highlights shows on the BBC are getting 1 million viewers EACH (once broadcast and iplayer have been counted). That's an incredible number if true. The Premier League show on a Thursday evening at 10pm on BBC2 doesn't get near 800,000.

Double whammy of regular viewers at the Wembley game and Ryder Cup meant Week 4 on Sky Sports was pretty bad - just 36,000 for the excellent Raiders v Ravens game. The later game did not rank.

However Red Zone held up well with 21,000 viewers across the 6 hours on Sky Sports Mix.

Week 5 - 51,000 for the Texans v Vikings on Sky Sports 2. Falcons v Broncos got at least less than 42,000.

However, Red Zone on Sky Sports Mix got a relatively whopping 49,000 over 6 and a half hours which is very impressive. Maybe Sky will at some point ditch the studio & just show Red Zone. It appears more people like watching a load of touchdowns & defensive penalties than a whole game.

Or maybe, more people, like me, are so irritated by Kennedy and Reynolds that I would rather watch Red Zone.

I would much rather watch a game in it's entirety, like I do the day before with the College coverage for hours on end, but the Sky studio team are just too irritating for me, and I guess, many others judging by those Red Zone numbers.

Also, of course, Red Zone acknowledges the existence of all 32 teams, not just the usual dozen and this years "trendy picks".

Ditto, I much prefer watching a game from start to finish, even a blowout. But my Sunday evenings are now Red Zone plus the Raiders game. If I want to see endless clips of a fat bloke punching the air every time someone on his fantasy team scores a touchdown I can just look in the mirror.

I particularly liked a graphic I saw on Twitter from Sunday's show, I think it was listing all the QBs to start their career without throwing an interception (they should have been specific 'NFL career') and fourth or fifth on the list was 'Warren Moon - Texans'.

Do you think in the next year or two we will see the full games at 6pm & 9pm phased out and replaced with Red Zone?

I know they tried it before and it was met with a big backlash, but these viewing figures must make Sky think.

I'd hate to see the full games go but from a business sense Sky are seeing a show with no production/studio costs getting similar or better ratings than their own produced shows, must make them think about going full time with Red Zone.
