  • Winter X Games Look To Regain Audience After Drop In '11

    ESPN looks to boost the audience for the Winter X Games back above the 1 million viewership mark this year, after figures last year declined coming off record cable-only viewership in '10. This year's edition marks the third straight year the event will not feature any telecasts on ABC after airing select telecasts on the net from '98-09. The event saw gains in primetime among adults 18-34 last year, but was down overall due mostly to lower ratings in weekend dayparts. Listed below is a viewership trend for Winter X Games, dating back to the inaugural event in '97 (THE DAILY).
