Frosted Flakes: National Championship Game and a Women’s Sports Only Bar

Do you think all of the NCAA Volleyball Championship should be aired?

Did you watch the National Championship Game last night?

I tried to watch some of it, but my ESPN app was being difficult and so I just had to settle for check in on the score occasionally.

I didn’t have a huge interest in watching. It did get me wondering about National Championship viewership throughout different sports. The 2022 NCAA Football National Championship had about 6 million more viewers than last year’s Basketball National Championship.

Nebraska and Wisconsin’s Volleyball National Championship had 1.2 million, which is a record, but it is about 3 million below last year’s Women’s Basketball Championship. I couldn’t find numbers for this years game. As more of the women’s basketball games were televised, the tv ratings have increased. I would like to bet that the volleyball ratings would increase even more, if the tournament was given more tv time.

Here are your flakes.
