Monday Night Raw is getting more viewers than NBA and MLB
NFL Hard Knocks took a nosedive
Ratings aren't the be all end all but I'm legit surprised because we all assumed ratings would be through the roof due to the pandemic. I imagine the NBA's will go up with the playoffs starting.
Of course Trumpsters will blame it on the kneeling, but do yall think the pandemic has people just not caring about sports anymore and will it have an everlasting effect on sports viewership in general or should the leagues just chalk this to an outlier given how crazy this year is.
Media is consumed differently these days. I’m not even sure “TV” will really be a thing In like 10 years.
NBA ratings will pick up for the playoffs though. With all the crazy shyt happening in the world right now a lot of people don’t have time to sit and watch seeding games thatre largely meaningless except for a select few.
Honestly I had no idea they were even doing Hard Knocks this year until I saw a thread on here yesterday
Can only speak for myself but after so many months without watching sports as part of my daily schedule I have kinda learned to live without it.
People still watching play fighting in 2020?
It's the middle of Summer (which NBA doesn't play for a reason) and everyone was stuck in the house for most of it. Personally I can't travel much due to covid/travel restrictions but on the weekend or a nice evening I'm not gonna watch sports programming all night, even if it's a small little get together i'm doin that
I'll be all in once the playoffs get going
More then lebron yes
Real talk, some people had probably gotten used to not having sports on during the lockdown. Even though the may be happy that sports is back, they probably aren't forcing themselves to watch as much of it as possible.
HBO MAX.. you can watch whenever, why watch it at a select time on regular HBO. It ain't like it's The Wire and u gotta see it that night
The ratings are low because the product is bad. NBA basketball has been trash the last couple of years. People naturally don't want to watch a bad product. Also the bubble doesn't help. It looks like summer league basketball instead of the NBA.
Yall got your hopes high thinking the pandemic would change people's attitudes on the current state of the NBA.
the kneeling has played a role but i doubt its enough to sway ratings that much. people probably became accustomed to being without it..and also have the kids around more so may be ceding the remote to them idk
when the playoffs start let's revisit this thread.
It's 1:50 in the gotdamn afternoon and the Lakers are currently playing. I won't be home for a good 6 hours
bubble ball product has been better than pre covid in my opinion
