ESPN, NFL Net Draft Ratings Down Amid Heavy On-Air Competition
Published April 29, 2011
The Draft had plenty of competition from other programming. Fox led all telecasts with an episode of “American Idol,” which earned a 13.4 overnight. NBC also aired Steve Carell’s final episode on “The Office,” which earned a 5.7 overnight. TNT aired an NBA Playoff doubleheader, with Lakers-Hornets Game Six leading the way with a 2.7 overnight from 8:09-10:39pm. Mavericks-Trail Blazers Game Six in the net’s late window earned a 2.6 overnight from 10:39pm-1:19am.
All ratings exclude the Birmingham market due to the recent storms. There were six players from Auburn and Alabama taken in the first round.
