FOX Delivers 1.0 Overnight Rating For Chelsea vs Manchester United on US TV

fox sports FOX Delivers 1.0 Overnight Rating For Chelsea vs Manchester United on US TV

FOX delivered a 1.0 overnight rating for its February 5, 2002 live broadcast of Chelsea against Manchester United.

The rating is higher than the 0.9 that Arsenal against Manchester United generated, but lower than the 1.3 rating for the November 20, 2011 broadcast of Chelsea against Liverpool, which was shown on tape delay.

It’s good news to see that the rating for the 3-3 draw between Chelsea and Manchester United was greater than the Arsenal versus Manchester United match from January 20, 2012. Progress was made there, but based on the ratings data, it again points to the need for games to be shown live on FOX Soccer and shown on delay on the free-to-air network later in the day in order to maximize the most amount of viewers.

The rating is the percentage of television households tuned to a broadcast.
