ABC’s regional coverage on Saturday night led all college football telecasts over the weekend. That window earned a 3.5 overnight for coverage featuring Baylor-Texas and Florida State-Miami. Right behind ABC’s primetime window was CBS’ South Carolina-Florida in the 3:30pm ET window (3.3 overnight). Meanwhile, ESPN earned a 2.3 overnight for yesterday afternoon’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway. That figure is down from a 2.9 overnight during the same weekend last year, when the Chase for the Sprint Cup was at Talladega Superspeedway. The fall race at Kansas Speedway last year was on Oct. 9, and ESPN earned a 2.3 overnight for that race.
The chart below lists overnight Nielsen ratings for weekend sports telecasts on broadcast TV.
