Thursday Cable Ratings: NFL Draft Huge, Project Runway Jumps, Plus NBA Playoffs



Combining both the ESPN and NFL Network coverage, the first round of the NFL Draft averaged a monster 8.3 million viewers and a 3.7 adults 18-49 rating, which *in total* beat the 18-49 rating of the #1 broadcast show last night, Survivor. Even by itself, the ESPN Draft coverage topped CBS‘ 18-49 overall primetime rating (although the ESPN average covered more than primetime).

Project Runway soared, gaining about 800,000 viewers and 0.4 adults 18-49 ratings points from last week.
