  • Overnight Ratings: NBC Sees Dip For Final Round Of PGA Tour Arnold Palmer Invitational

    NBC yesterday drew a 1.5 overnight rating for the final round of the PGA Tour Arnold Palmer Invitational, which saw Marc Leishman win the event by one stroke over Kevin Kisner and Charley Hoffman. That figure is down 29% from a 2.1 overnight for NBC's coverage of the final round last year, which saw Jason Day win the event by one shot over Kevin Chappell. Saturday's third round on NBC earned a 1.2 overnight rating, down slightly from a 1.4 last year.
