Default NBC SPORTS NETWORK RATINGS ARE A DISASTER

Ratings for the NBC Sports Network have tanked without the NHL. Over
the last month, the top-rated programs on the network have
consistently been outdoors shows, with hunting and fishing features
taking up 14 of the top 20 highest rated timeslots this month. There
were just two programs that drew over 200,000 viewers: bonus coverage
of the 49ers-Patriots game on December 16th (1.2 million viewers) and
a live boxing card on December 8th (216,000). To put that in
perspective, ESPN2's coverage of the Crossfit Games gets 200,000
viewers.

NBCSN's studio shows have been even worse for the network than their
lackluster slate of live events without the NHL. No studio show in
December drew 100,000 viewers, and the Dan Patrick Show has
consistently finished with under 50,000 viewers for their top
airings... which is the hour-long "Best Of" episode in the afternoon.
The Lights hasn't been able to crack 30,000 viewers, while NBC Sports
Talk hasn't broke 50,000 viewers for an episode while falling as low
as 24,000 viewers. Pro Football Talk and NFL Turning Point have done
better for the network, regularly drawing over 50,000 viewers but just
one airing of either show finished in the top 20 for the week in the
month of December.

Despite having the NBC promotional machine behind it, NBC Sports
Network had a rough 2012. If it weren't for their coverage of Olympic
events in August, I'd wonder just how bad the cumulative ratings for
the year are. I'm sure that the brass at NBC would love to wipe the
slate clean of the remnants of the Outdoor Life Network and start
fresh with a schedule loaded with live events and original
programming, but that's proving much more difficult than originally
imagined.

The peacock is in a tough place right now. If they want more people to
start taking them seriously as a destination network, they need to
transition away from the outdoors shows. However, in doing that,
they're losing their consistently highest-rated programs, and could
run the risk of falling further into the abyss.

Ratings fro the network were already tanking before the NHL season came
around. Ratings started tanking the day the logo changed from 'Vs' to 'NBC
SPORTS'.

Until bicycling and autoracing seasons start up, does the network have any
content to offer?
