Still more Spartacus: Blood and Sand ratings detail based on final cable numbers via Starz. And you know you wanted more!
Please note: where Starz talks about being #1 on all of cable for Friday 2/19, it is talking about the coverage ratings rankings. Coverage ratings measure only the percentages based on the number of homes where a network is available.
Starz was only available in around 22 million homes as of December, according to Nielsen, while the bigger cable channels are available in 95M-100M homes. So the rankings within the coverage ratings is a bit misleading since USA could have a much smaller coverage rating and still many more viewers. Cable networks using coverage ratings is a common practice, and either way, Spartacus: Blood and Sand is doing very well for Starz.
