Flip The Script: NFL Net’s Steelers-Titans Tops Orioles-Yankees
After overnight ratings originally had TBS’ telecast of Orioles-Yankees ALDS Game 4 out-rating NFL Network’s Steelers-Titans “Thursday Night Football,” fast-national Nielsen data now has the NFL game topping the MLB game. NFL Net earned a 3.6 U.S. rating and 5.7 million viewers for Steelers-Titans, marking the most-viewed sports telecast Thursday. Those figures are ahead of the 3.5 rating and 5.2 million viewers for Orioles-Yankees on TBS.
TBS/TNT finished with a combined 13.0 million viewers for the four LDS games yesterday. The two night games -- Orioles-Yankees from 7:30pm-12:16am ET and TNT's Tigers-A's ALDS Game 5 from 9:30pm-12:44am -- combined for 7.4 million viewers.
