    Does anybody know the ratings ESPN got for the games Team USA played? I think all three games were played on ESPN2 opposite baseball or pre-season football on ESPN, so it would be intresting to see how the ratings stack up. Maybe if they were good enough ESPN would show some more hockey events? :help:

    I asked this question in a different thread ("ESPN sucks") and have yet to receive a response...:dunno:

    So I'll ask it here again:

    Anyone hear what the ratings are for the World Cup games thus far??

    I'm hoping they'd be good enough to warrant ESPN to carry events like this (and follow the US team in the World Juniors and World Championships..).

    Thanks in advance...

    Those jerks didn't even carry all the games :shakehead (I know it's been mentioned in the other thread :) )
    It's pretty pathetic

    From a business perspective, who could blame them. Especially considering the traditionally poor ratings hockey gets in the USA, and since Saturday was college football's opening weekend (for all intents and purposes - a couple games were played the week before, but most programs started Saturday.)

    Hockey before Labour Day... during the end of baseball season and the start of football season... on ESPN 8... many during weekday afternoon hours so far?

    The Garden Channel is probably getting better ratings.
