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.
