The CAVS on FOX Sports Ohio
FOX Sports Ohio and the Cavs share a record-breaking season with historic ratings.
The Sports Business Journal reported:
"The Cavaliers’ run to the NBA’s best record brought Cleveland the highest local regular-season TV ratings for any NBA team in more than a decade. Paced by the Cavs’ 116 percent increase from last year, leaguewide viewership across all regional sports networks increased by 8 percent this season. Half the 26 RSNs monitored saw their ratings rise during the regular season.
But the biggest success story came from LeBron James and his Cleveland teammates, who set a regular-season ratings record for Fox Sports Ohio with an 8.76 rating/134,000 homes. The Cavs posted the highest rating number since the Chicago Bulls averaged an 8.9 rating in Chicago for the 1997-98 season, Michael Jordan’s final season with that club.
Even more stunning is the fact that an average of 134,000 Cleveland-area homes tuned in for each Cavs game, second only to the Lakers’ 250,000 average on Fox Sports West. Cleveland is the country’s 17th-largest TV market."
