0

For the second time this season, ratings for Notre Dame football on NBC fell to a record low.

Last Saturday’s Navy/Notre Dame game earned a mere 1.1 final rating and 1.724 million viewers on NBC, down 15% in ratings and 8% in viewership from the network’s fifth Notre Dame telecast last year (WMU/ND: 1.3, 1.863M), and down 50% and 46%, respectively, from the fifth such telecast in 2009 (BC/ND: 2.2, 3.438M).
