No. 4 TCU’s prime-time shutout of Kansas on Saturday delivered the low viewership numbers that many expected.
Fox’s national broadcast of TCU’s 43-0 victory produced a measly 0.7 rating, according to Sportsmediawatch. A ratings point equals 1 percent of the nation’s homes with televisions.
Oklahoma State’s overtime victory against Texas finished third nationally with a 2.5 on ABC. Oklahoma’s 42-35 victory at Kansas State was fifth with a 1.9 on Fox.
Iowa State’s victory at Texas Tech (0.21 on FS1) and West Virgina’s win at Baylor (0.18 on FS2) were the two lowest-rated games of the weekend.
Penn State’s prime-time victory over Michigan on ABC was the weekend’s most-watched game, with a 3.9 rating. Saturday’s other prime-time game, Notre Dame’s rout of USC, had a 1.8 for NBC.
