Context is very important here and Fluffy touched on it a little.  Viewership for TV this summer is very down.  So yes, NBA is losing eyeballs but they are still winning veiwers.

https://www.houstonchronicle.com/texas-sports-nation/rockets/article/NBA-s-TV-ratings-up-since-restart-15490159.php

Key stat:

Quote
the nightly prime time games on ABC, ESPN or TNT have been the most-watched programs among men 18-49 since the restart, according to the Nielsen Co.

The NBA would love to see past #s but if they are winning each night, they will still command big $$$ bc it's still the best way to rest a mass amount of people.  It's the new normal and it has been accelerated by COVID-19 but I would bet the NBA had modeled this out for future years so they were ready.  As long as live sports are the #1 thing on TV, the NBA will be fine.

Kentucky Derby Ratings "Brutal".

Perhaps if the horses wouldn't have kneeled...

https://twitter.com/MediumBuying/status/1302749263634534400?s=19

Go Doc. 👍

Calling that race the Kentucky Derby was absurd.  It would be akin to the Indy 500 being run in October.

KD is fun because of everything around the race, not the race itself.  It's the most beautiful weekend of the year... spring has sprung.  To me, it is the official start of nice weather, grilling outside, and not quite summer... but you can sniff it.  A cool day in September?  Not the Derby... that's college football season.

I think that's part of the reason for lackluster ratings with some of the sports.  Everything is off of its normal calendar and rhythm.  I had no idea the Indy 500 was being run until the day after.  We've gone from no sports, to almost too much sports, but then its weird without crowds, etc.  So nothing seems right about it.

And then the NFL starts tonight.

Mostly Sunny, afternoon high of 82 degrees. That's much better weather than many past first weekends in May, in LOU-ih-vulle.

The overall point of course is that several television sports ratings are down and don't fit the narrative that somehow people are not watching because of social justice protests and statements.

his teammates turned against him too.

I wonder how much of that was due to the fact that she was Marotta's girlfriend, left alone for the summer while Marotta was in DC interning?

IIRC Doc and Marc were very close friends prior to that summer.

Sad to see Clippers go out so lamely. I was rooting for a Heat-Clippers finals, Jimmy/Jae vs Rivers.

But I'm still proud of our fellow alum, Glenn "Doc" Rivers, for having such an important voice on such an important issue.

Anyone care to check the NFL ratings for Week 1? Seems we have enough data at this point to demonstrate a trend between social justice warrioring and viewership ratings, and it absolutely is having an effect on NBA ratings. It seems at least 80% of the visitors to this board can’t slurp BLM propaganda fast enough, but I have no interest in watching athletes spread lies about what is truly impacting the progress of the black community. My emotional connection to the NBA (Bucks) and the NFL (Packers) is gone, and it’s not coming back, and there are a lot of people like me. “Good riddance,” “We don’t need you,” “The sport is better off without you,” “you were never a real fan” etc, but it all just supports the fact that athletes have turned sports into a polarizing product, whether you slurpers feel it is warranted or not. I look forward to the advent of the MSNBA and the CNNFL. Maybe Fox will develop its own FOXFL.

Thanks for reminding me that I'm doing the right thing by supporting the Bucks and the NBA. It is clear we should judge right and wrong by the ratings.  Think the South would still have slavery if that were the case?

Another moron comparing the social and cultural challenges of certain communities to the horrors of legalized slavery. Keep slurping fool. Enjoy watching the Bucks. Oh wait.

I suggest you look at my signature and do the same for Marquette. If this is your attitude, the players do not want you supporting them nor the program.

The NFL was the #1 program on TV this week.  And in August, the NBA was the #1 program on TV. 

Viewership is down across every program for a host of reasons.  But the NFL and the NBA continue to be incredibly valuable (actually the most valuable) TV inventory for networks.   You can expect to still see massive rate increases when both leagues re-up their TV deals.

Ratings for the Fox games were up.
Ratings for the NBC games were down slightly.
Ratings for the CBS games were down more.
As always, ratings are driven largely by matchups. And ratings are always down during a presidential election year.
Sorry to ruin your narrative.
