Georgia's obliteration of TCU leads to lowest ratings in college football title game history

Jan 11, 2023

It appears fans did not feel like watching most of Monday's College Football Playoff title game between Georgia and TCU, and it's difficult to blame them.

The 65-7 show of force from Georgia on its way to a second consecutive national championship drew only 17.223 million viewers for ESPN's family of channels, according to Austin Karp of Sports Business Journal. That number reportedly makes the Bulldogs' win the least-watched college football title game since the beginning of the BCS in 1999.

ESPN's main broadcast reportedly averaged 16.6 million viewers, though the "Field Pass with The Pat McAfee Show," in which the former NFL punter and some of his friends watched and reacted to the game from the field, was a relative success, with 423,000 viewers.
