Fox pregame show beat ESPNs Gameday this week

@AndrewMarchand

Fox’s Big Noon Kickoff beat ESPN’s GameDay on Saturday with a 1.6 rating to 1.54 from 11-noon, according to Fox.

* Fox uses overnight metered markets, while ESPN waits until midweek for the complete ratings.

The Fox Big Noon Kickoff vs. GameDay ratings are very close from Saturday. The takeaway is that Fox put together a really good show with big names that, when combined with the game of the day, can challenge GameDay.

The bigger takeaway is: Fox is definitely selling this as it goes after CBS' SEC package. It has given Big Noon an identity. I'm sure money will win the day with SEC, but Fox can make a compelling case it could grow it even further.

I would not be surprised if SEC breaks up the package, putting it on multiple networks to broaden exposure and potentially get the most money.


I didn't know Fox is going after the SEC package. Would you prefer CBS or Fox?

Isn't the SEC package technically split now with CBS and ESPN?

How is this even a question? CBS coverage is way better even with Danielson.

Fox commentators during game are horrible - every OSU game I watch it sounds like one of the guys is jerking it to Chase Young.

I don't usually watch GameDay for more than a few minutes each week but have been setting a reminder on my tv to switch to Big Noon Kickoff. Really neat breakdowns with Meyer

Because games on CBS are like 3.5 hours long.

I'm downtown and this is just the opposite. FOX is strong no matter where the antenna is but. CBS is jumpy if it isn't in one particular spot.

So we have to pick what we would prefer between 11am kickoffs on fox or 2:30 on cbs?
Give me neither and let me pick espn,espn2,espnu, or secN at 6.
These frickers don't give a shite about tradition. The pageantry of SEC night games is about to be lost forever if fox and cbs take over sec television rights

Definitely not Fox if they're going to be putting SEC games on at 11:00. Would suck for tailgating and would be hot as frick sitting in that sun for early season games.

The biggest reason for this week was that Fox was leading up to Michigan vs. Ohio State while Gameday was there for Minnesota vs. Wisconsin.

Clearly, the average fan has a greater interest in the Michigan-Ohio State game.

It will be interesting to see if they can sustain some of the success they are seeing.

Ohio St/Michigan vs Minn/Wisconsin? Over course the FOX pregame had more viewers.

With that being said, Minnesota's atmosphere was pretty tight.

I'd say it is likely to do with the "big game" being on that channel so people flipped to it.

It's way better, but people don't switch overnight from something they've had for 20+ years.

I watch the SEC Network now personally. Like it more.

I think the majority of us have grown up with the SEC on CBS. I'd like to stick with CBS because I like their presentation way more than FOXS. With that being said 5+ hr games sucks. But I can get over that.

Doesn't Fox do the same exact thing that CBS does for SEC teams?
