NBC did not earn much of an audience for Saturday’s Pittsburgh/Notre Dame game.
Notre Dame’s win drew a 1.4 overnight rating on NBC Saturday afternoon, down 69% from NBC’s fourth game last year (USC/ND: 4.5) and down 33% from the fourth game in 2008 (STAN/ND: 2.1).
The 1.4 overnight is the lowest of the season for Notre Dame football on NBC. The network’s other three telecasts each drew at least a 2.0.
Additionally, this marks the lowest overnight for Notre Dame on NBC since the team’s 2009 home opener against Nevada (1.3).
The telecast was topped both by regional college football action on ABC (3.4) and Alabama/South Carolina on CBS (5.2).
