College football dominated the Saturday cable ratings yet again last week.
ESPN’s broadcast of the NCAA game between Ole Miss and LSU won the top spot of the night with a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 2.02 million viewers. A&E’s “Live PD” came second with a 0.6, the same as what it had scored the Saturday before.
ESPN’s coverage of the earlier Florida vs. Mississippi State and Arkansas vs. Texas A&M NCAA games came in slightly lower with 0.6 and 0.5s, respectively. The network’s additional post and pre-game NCAA coverage grabbed several other spots in the top 25 as well with 0.5-0.3s.
