Final Ratings: FS1 Draws Best Total-Day Audience Yet With Football, NASCAR Trucks

FS1 last Saturday drew its best total-day audience dating back to the cable net’s Aug. 17 launch, fueled by the Washington State-Oregon football game from 10:00pm-1:43am ET (1.14 million viewers) and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race from Talladega Superspeedway (1.02 million viewers) from 4:01-6:40pm. The net also drew 770,000 viewers for Texas Tech-West Virginia from 12:00-3:40pm and 628,000 viewers for the UFC 166 Prelims from 8:00-10:00pm (Austin Karp, Assistant Managing Editor).

NOTES: NBC “just wrapped up its best first month to the fall since 2007.” Through the week that ended Oct. 20, “NBC has piled up the largest margin over its nearest rival in 11 years in the crucial adults aged 18 to 49 demographic.” Much of the “commanding performance was football-fueled” (LATIMES.com, 8/22)….Last Sunday’s Rams-Panthers game drew 402,600 viewers in the Charlotte market, but “despite the strong interest” for the game, that figure is down 5% from the Panthers’ win over the Vikings in Week 6 (BIZJOURNALS.com, 10/21)….ESPN’s Oklahoma-Kansas drew a 21.2 local rating in Oklahoma City last Saturday, marking the top sports rating last weekend. NBC earned a 19.5 local rating for the Broncos-Colts “SNF” game (OKLAHOMAN, 10/22)….HBO averaged 1.2 million viewers for the “World Championship Boxing” main event last Saturday from 11:08-11:48pm, which featured Mike Alvarado’s title defense against Ruslan Provodnikov. That figure marks the year’s ninth-best boxing audience on cable TV (DENVERPOST.com, 10/23).
