The Saturday cable ratings were, once again, dominated by live college football coverage.
ESPN’s broadcast of the Arkansas vs. LSU game topped the night’s cable chart with a 0.8 rating in the adults 18-49 demo and 3.17 million viewers. That puts it up a bit from the 0.7 rating and 2.63 million viewer audience that ESPN’s LSU vs. Mississippi broadcast won the previous week’s Saturday cable chart with.
ESPN scored Saturday’s second and third-highest-rated broadcasts as well, with its usual “College GameDay” coverage (0.7) and its broadcast of the day’s earlier game between Indiana and Michigan (0.6, 2.3 million). Meanwhile, A&E’s “Live PD” followed closely behind with yet another 0.5.
