Sports Media Notes

Wednesday, February 07, 2007

Well, it's officially "after the Super Bowl" because I can't find shiz to talk about on these here intrawebs. Here are a few Sports Media Notes that fall under the "you might care about this" tag. If you don't then just play the Martin Lawrence clip over again. I find something new every time.

I was checking out the TV ratings for the NBA this year and I can't really understand why less people are watching. There are so many more story lines going on this year as opposed to last year. I.E.- Anything Arenas does, A.I. to the Nuggets, the Carmelo incident, The Suns and Mavs, and the Celtics losing every game they play. I guess the main thing I'm happy about is the fact that TNT is still beating ESPN. (First #- ratings, Second #- Households in millions, Third #- number of telecasts....through Feb 1.)

ABC 2006-2007: 2.6/2,925,000/4, 2005-2006: 3.1/3,367,000/5 -16.1%
TNT 2006-2007: 1.3/1,156,000/30, 2005-2006: 1.4/1,275,000/32 -7.1%
ESPN 2006-2007: 1.2/1,094,000/41, 2005-2006: 1.2/1,118,000/32 0.0%

From Sports Biz Daily.....

SI.com has launched “Jenn X Road Trip,” a new video series produced by Chicago-based Intersport in which SI.com columnist Jenn Sterger visits six campuses during the college basketball season and reports on the game atmosphere, traditions, student body and party scene. Sterger will continue the series in the fall for football season
I know she's not one of the best writers on the planet (I'm not one to talk), but that sure is a hell of a job.

The entire reason for ABC's ratings decline is because of how low this year's Christmas Day ratings were. Outside of Christmas, ABC's three telecasts (one on January 21 and two on January 28) were up 5%, 5% and 21% from the previous year.

I think we should do like the mainstream media and just report on each other when there's nothing else.

"Superstar blogger AA was seen canoodling with Babes Love Baseball at a trendy internet message board this morning".

Canoodling. Is that what the kids are calling it nowadays?
