HARDWOOD WOES: German free-to-air TV channel Sport 1 attracted a disappointing 100,000 viewers to its broadcast of Sunday's Basketball Bundesliga match-up between Alba Berlin and Bayern Munich. The number equaled a 0.5% market share. In the target demographic, the market share was even lower with 0.3%. Prior to the game, Sport 1 commentator Frank Buschmann wrote on Facebook: "If this game doesn't attract even 200,000 to 300,000 fans then I don't know anymore" (DWDL, 12/3).
