are these good number's?

 

Not at all. Big drop-off from last year.

 

I can't believe the ratings were higher than the heat's. It's probably cuz heat fans actually go to the games.

 

I can. There are more Marlins fans that Heat fans. The buzz around town for the Heat in the finals didn't compare to the '03 WS.

 

I really doubt that dude. Most people didn't start to watch the marlins in '03 until

they started getting hot around mid-season. Shaq and Wade create more buzz

alone than the entire marlins team IMO.

The local TV ratings for the '03 WS were in the high 30s but the ratings for the '06 NBA finals were "only" in the high 20's.

I agree. The Marlins truly shocked the world, whereas the Heat simply met expectations and fans had a "Well it's about damn time!" type of attitude.

I suspect it's also cuz there's alot more marlins games than there is heat games. Oh well,

still sucks they went down from last year.

You are terribly mistaken.

I can't think of a better way to measure it than TV ratings and the Marlins blow away the Heat in that department. If you go by talk radio one would think the Heat because talk radio is about the Dolphins and then the Heat but that's because the hosts are for the most part not baseball fans and if they are baseball fans they have baseball after football and basketball. Just my opinion.

It's very simple. They have baseball after football and basketball because people in South Florida care more about football and basketball.

You mean the ones who became fans when the Heat made the playoffs? Cuz I remember... that place was packed when the Heat weren't doing so well. :|

 

Baseball > Basketball anyway :thumbup

I'm surprised the ratings are that much higher than the Heat's ratings. It could be because the Heat play during a time of year when there's just a lot of other stuff on. There's absolutely nothing else to watch during most of the baseball season.

 

But that probably only partly explains it, I'm sure. When you get right down to it, baseball is just a more popular sport than the basketball.

The 150 Marlins games on FSN and Sun finished with a 2.9 rating -- down from a 4.2 for 95 Marlins games on FSN last season but topping the 2.3 for regular-season 2005-06 Heat games on Sun.

I'm not saying this is whole reason for the drop-off but maybe a contributing factor...there was some confusion about the "additional games" not included on some cable packages and initially DirecTV. In fact, even after DirectTV announced they would be available you needed the Total Choice Plus plan. In other words, if you just had Total Choice you weren't getting those games. I know Comcast carried all the games but I think Adelphia did not.

These ratings are no surprise. The HEAt got beaten by the Marlins simply because baseball is nightly viewing while basketball is a couple times a week.

 

BTW, Sun Sports got good enough ratings for the HEAT, basketball just does not bring in ratings when you have a game like Charlotte-Miami going against Chicago-Detroit on the same night over on TNT or ESPN.

 

MLB on ESPN doesn't cannibalize itself or the local teams.
