Overnight Ratings: Match Play Sees Lowest Sunday Figure Since '10

NBC yesterday drew a 1.6 overnight for the final match at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, which saw Kevin Kisner defeat Matt Kuchar. That is the lowest figure for the event since ’10, when CBS drew a 1.3 for Ian Poulter’s win over Paul Casey. That telecast went up against the Vancouver Games on NBC as the event was previously held in February. Last year, Bubba Watson’s win over Kisner drew a 1.8 overnight on NBC, while Dustin Johnson’s win over John Rahm also drew a 1.8 in ’17.

The chart below lists overnight ratings from weekend sports telecasts on broadcast TV.
