SMW notes that the ratings for Thursday’s Dolphins-Panthers game on NFL Network dropped from the week before.
SMW says NFL Week 10 was a mixed bag for Fox.
NFL Week 10, however, was good for CBS.
CBS did not fare so well with the SEC as it slipped below ABC’s offerings opposite Florida-South Carolina.
But SMW says ABC’s ratings for college football continue to show signs of slippage. Or to cut down on the verbiage, I could have written, “ABC’s college football ratings slipped again last week.”
And SMW has various ratings news and notes.
That is going to conclude the links for tonight. I should be back on Saturday provided my day has not been planned for me behind my back.
