Due to being away from my computer for the entire daylight hours, I was unable to update the site. I’m back now so expect a few posts here before I have to prepare for Friday. Let’s give you what CBS is saying about its SEC regular season college football package.
CBS is claiming a ratings victory over the ESPN on ABC package with a 4.2 rating and a 9 share. That’s compared to a 3.5/8 on ABC. This year’s ratings are down slightly from last year’s 4.2/10 and 2009′s 4.4/10.
We provide the short blurb from CBS Sports.
