They are switching to main ESPN channels this week after only being on FX last week.

Trying to boost the numbers.

This is game week 4 and ESPN is probably a pay subscription channel in USA. That limits boosting numbers. I checked what live audiences have been like and which direction they are headed. Of 12 games, 10 were below 13K, 1 game at 16K  and 1 at 24K ( week one ). Two games were below 6050 ( Vipers ) .


    Seattle Dragons vs Vegas Vipers ? FX ? 528,000 avg. viewers, 0.29 rating
    St. Louis Battlehawks vs D.C. Defenders ? FX ? 665,000 avg. viewers, 0.36 rating
    Orlando Guardians vs Arlington Renegades ? FX ? 550,000 avg. viewers, 0.33 rating
    San Antonio Brahmas vs Houston Roughnecks ? ESPN2 ? 543,000 avg. viewers, 0.32


Trending downwards.  Some of the week 1 tickets might have been given away to increase audience but I can't confirm that. Will check after this week to see any new trend.

It's probable they expected early losses but how much will they accept as the season progresses. At some point low live audience and TV revenue has to increase or it's an early exit etc.

10 times the potential viewership base, barely larger actual viewership...

Get back to me when the thing folds. That's my only interest.
