From Sports Media Watch:
The first round of the 2009 WNBA Playoffs averaged a 0.2 U.S. rating and 312,000 viewers on ESPN2, flat in ratings but up 11% in viewership from a 0.2 and 282,000 viewers last year.
Household viewership is up 15% (264,000 vs. 229,000).
The numbers are over 1/2 the rating of the first round of the Stanley Cup on Versus. Not bad. Not bad at all. My wife even talked someone into watching the first round of the playoffs - don't know how that went.
