Overnight Ratings: Fox Leads All CFB With Ohio State-Michigan State

Fox led Week 11 college football matchups with a 3.9 overnight rating for Ohio State-Michigan State in the 12:00pm ET window on Saturday. That beat out Alabama’s shutout of Mississippi State in the 3:30pm window, which drew a 3.4 overnight. ABC’s best figure in Week 11 was a 3.0 for the Oklahoma State-Oklahoma shootout in the 3:30pm window. ESPN had the top figure on cable, drawing a 2.3 overnight for Auburn-Georgia on Saturday night.

FLAT SURFACE: NBC yesterday afternoon drew a 2.1 overnight for the penultimate race in the ’18 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. That figure from ISM Raceway in the Phoenix area is flat compared to the same race last season. Headed into yesterday’s race, Cup Series viewership was down 19% year-over-year across all networks.
