Wizards preseason ratings soar
Consider this blog an empty vessel to be filled with incessant ratings information from local sports broadcasts.
Here's the latest: the John Wall-led Wizards on Comcast SportsNet went boffo on Tuesday night, earning a 1.80 average rating in the D.C. market, equal to about 43,000 households. That's up more than 200 percent from last season's preseason Wiz debut, and up 55 percent from last year's regular season average.
It's also higher than the just-released 2010 average for the Nats on MASN and MASN2, and higher than last season's Caps average on CSN and CSN+.
Including the Baltimore market, the game attracted roughly 56,000 combined households, according to Nielsen numbers.
And no, we haven't yet reached the state in life where I'll be reporting the overnight ratings numbers for every game involving every D.C. team, including the Washington Kastles. That stage comes next year.
