WEEK ONE ROUNDUP: In Miami, Barry Jackson writes “never in at least the past decade -- probably much longer -- has a season-opening Dolphins game generated a local television rating nearly as small as the shockingly low” 13.5 local rating in the Miami-Ft. Lauderdale market for the team’s matchup against the Texans. The Dolphins averaged a 17.7 local rating last season, and the 13.5 rating marked “by far the worst rating for any NFL market’s home team on opening weekend.” The Dolphins had “averaged a 20.2 rating for their previous 10 openers” (MIAMI HERALD, 9/14)....In DC, Dan Steinberg noted WTTG-Fox earned a 24.5 local rating in the DC market for the Redskins-Saints game in its early NFL window last Sunday, “down significantly” from a 30.8 rating for the team’s opener against the Giants last year, which aired in the national window (WASHINGTONPOST.com, 9/12).
