Overnight Ratings: Women's Gymnastics Down; EPL Up

NBC drew a 2.0 overnight for the women’s portion of the U.S. Gymnastics Championships last night, down from a 2.2 last year, but up from a 1.9 two years ago.

TRUST WORTHY: The final round of the PGA Tour Northern Trust drew a 2.0 overnight on CBS yesterday, as Patrick Reed held off Abraham Ancer by one stroke. That figure for the first event in the FedExCup Playoffs is up from a 1.6 last year, when it was held in late August and Bryson DeChambeau won by four strokes. Two years ago in late August, the final round drew a 2.4 overnight when Dustin Johnson defeated Jordan Spieth in a playoff.

CABLE SYSTEM: NBCSN yesterday drew a 1.8 overnight for the NASCAR race from Michigan, marking the best Cup Series race on cable TV in two years (dating back to 2.0 for same race). Meanwhile, NBCSN also drew a 0.8 overnight for Chelsea-Manchester United on Sunday, marking the best cable overnight on record for the EPL’s opening weekend. The 0.8 is the second-best overnight for any EPL match on cable, behind only Leicester City-ManU in May ’16. Last year, NBCSN drew a 0.6 overnight for the Manchester City-Arsenal opener.
