Luck Of The Irish: Notre Dame-USC Sets Season-Best Overnight Rating
ABC earned a 10.3 overnight for the Notre Dame-USC game last night, marking the best college football overnight this season. The previous high was a 7.0 rating for CBS’ Alabama-LSU matchup on Nov. 3. By comparison, the 10.3 overnight is short of CBS’ Alabama-LSU primetime matchup during the ’11 regular season (11.9 overnight). ABC’s 10.3 is also better than any of ESPN’s BCS bowl game overnights last season, with the exception of the Alabama-LSU National Championship (13.8).
