Would compare poorly. Probably in line with WNBA.

I'd like to know what an LSU rating gets. Don't want a watered down average of everyone's games...

Ratings were up 9% from last season. That's a nice jump, considering all supers were on the ESPN networks last season as well.

Shhh Don't tell that to LSU fans (I'm included in that group). They'll never believe that no one really cares about college baseball

It's not that no one cares about college baseball.

When it's on people watch it they just wouldn't choose to. They don't understand how the CWS works and unless you have one favorite team it's hard to follow. Likewise, with the MLB draft having so many rounds it's hard for the casual MLB fan to follow the pro prospects.

Super Regionals-
ESPN’s complete coverage of the NCAA Division I Baseball Championship continues to generate large audiences, reaching nearly 30,000,000 viewers through the Super Regionals across ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU.

NBA Western Conference Finals-
Game 2 of the Grizzlies/Spurs NBA Western Conference Finals drew 4.6 million viewers on ESPN Tuesday night, down 48% from Celtics/Heat Game 2 last year. Games 1 & 3 of the series were the lowest since '07.

MLS-
This season the ESPN2 games have averaged less than 200k per match while the NBSCN telecasts have averaged approximately 100k.

NHL Stanley Cup-
This game unlike the first three, was on broadcast TV.
Last night’s triple overtime thriller (8 p.m.–1:06 a.m. ET) between the Boston Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks in the inaugural game of the 2013 Stanley Cup Final averaged nearly 6.4 million viewers, making it the most-watched Stanley Cup Final Game 1 in 16 years, the most-watched Game 1 ever on NBC

This doesn't mean anything. What are the game by game ratings?

It does mean something, it nearly doubled the NBA's Western Conference Finals total viewership. That said they had over 20 games on 3 different networks, so I know where you are coming from. However there are 4 articles are the SuperRegionals tv ratings, none list the market share (which I found odd)

this site just posted this-(still no game by game or market share)

ESPNU averaged 279,000 viewers for six telecasts, marking the network's most-viewed Super Regional coverage and a 41 percent increase over the first season it offered games

ESPN posted its most-viewed Super Regionals coverage since 2010, averaging 680,000 viewers.

WNBA averages 300000 viewers per ESPN game for comparison.

So about double a WNBA game.

I suspect the LSU/Oklahama games averaged more viewers though.

I'm surprised they didn't release the game by game. I doubt many people were watchting that (Rice?) extra inning game that ended at midnight after a long rain delay, so that had to bring down the average or the USCe/UNC game played on Monday morning.
