NCAA Week 7: Slight Drop For LSU/Tennessee on CBS


CBS hovered around a season-low for last week’s college football action.

Last Saturday’s #1 LSU/Tennessee college football game drew a 2.8 final rating and 4.447 million viewers on CBS, down a tick in ratings and 2% in viewership from Week 7 of last season (ARK/AUB: 2.9, 4.516M), and down 35% in both measures compared to 2009 (ARK/UF: 4.3, 6.844M).

The telecast earned the second-lowest numbers of the season for college football on CBS, ahead of only Air Force/Navy in Week 5 (1.2, 1.733M).

LSU/Tennessee was outdrawn head-to-head by ABC’s regional window (OKST/TEX: 3.8, 5.587M).
