Star power

Admittedly, it’s not really a fair fight, but this is still impressive:

It’s unusual for a college football game — or any programming, for that matter — to beat an NFL game in the television ratings. But the Bulldogs beat the Falcons on Atlanta TV last weekend.

Saturday’s Georgia-South Carolina game on CBS posted a 16.0 rating in the metro Atlanta TV market, meaning about 370,000 households tuned in on average.

Sunday’s Falcons-Tampa Bay game on Fox drew a 15.7 rating in metro Atlanta, or about 363,000 households.

I don’t think you’ll see any Falcons stories like this one or this one, either.

    Yes, but the best information was that high GTU rating of 4.4.

    Those Hive members are right: they do dominate Atlanta.

    Out of that 4.4, 3.4 was just having the T.V. on for background noise at nursing homes around the country.
