Spotted Ratings, Saturday 11/24/12

  • ABC is greatly disadvantaged in the overall averages every year due to sports, so it's nice to see them finally have a big day in that realm. Notre Dame's victory over USC was the highest-rated Saturday Night Football of not just this season but any season since ABC picked it up in 2006. A game this big lifts ABC as a whole by several ticks for the week. Fox's Stanford/UCLA got left wayyy behind.
  • CBS commenced its Made in Jersey burn-off, but I have to think it's no guarantee they will even air all the episodes if it continues to drag down the rest of the night like this. The night as a whole was down more than 40% week-to-week, but ABC's strength could also have something to do with that.

Seems unfair that ABC ended up the major game between USC (FOX) and Notre Dame (NBC).

I can see what you're saying, but I'm pretty sure NBC and ABC both have Notre Dame deals, NBC for all the home/neutral games and ABC for all the road games. NBC's seems to get much more pub because it's a much bigger part of their football presence. Perhaps NBC should just go after all the ND games. Or if nothing else, figure out a way to get the last game of the season at home.

I just meant in the cosmic sense. I really don't mind the financial reasons.
