Packers Turn In Sterling (Ratings) Performance


If its Tuesday, it must be the day after “Monday Night Football,” in which the Green Bay Packers dominated the Kansas City Chiefs, 38-28.

And once again Milwaukee viewers tuned in to watch en masse.

Complicating the local ratings TV picture was the fact that the game was shown on two channels – ESPN and WISN-TV (Channel 12), for a combined rating of nearly 50, a typical figure for Packer games.

ESPN is owned by Disney-ABC and WISN is an ABC affiliate.

The game earned a 35.6 for WISN, the equivalent of nearly 320,000 TV homes. The ratings were consistent throughout the game which also drove the station’s delayed late newscast to a 35 a 14.3 rating.

On ESPN the game earned a 13.1 rating, or the equivalent of another 120,000 television homes, not quite half of which stayed tuned for the channel’s “SportsCenter” program following the game.

The program that performed best against the game was “Scorpion,” a new show on CBS affiliate WDJT-TV (Channel 58) that earned a 5.7 between 7 and 8 p.m.
