ESPN's 32% ratings crash - layoffs happening

I watch it quite a bit because I love college basketball and watch the MLB during the summer. Also I think the 30-For-30 movies are all quite good. So I'm watching more than I ever have, but apparently nobody else is:

I don't mind them sticking to more national stories, they can't really compete with local sports coverage anyway. Everytime they do give a little token coverage to the Chiefs or Royals I find myself embarrassed by how little they know. That being said, they still have cover national sports stories with some actual substance.

It seems like they don't understand their audience. I don't care what clothes NBA players are wearing before the game, and the kind of people who do care probably aren't watching ESPN.

I imagine there have been many meetings at ESPN that ended with this same sentiment. How has that worked out for them?

The problem is people turn to the internet for news. If there would have been one save our chiefs update i would have supported the shit out of them. But the fact is they only cover big stupid east coast shit. Its on 24 hours a day thats enough time to cover all the little stuff in the small media markets is it not? Shit it doesnt even have to be super interesting put some reporter wannabe college girls on them let them read the script.

Not true. Not all fans of teams live in that teams local area. I'm just saying that it would be nice to cover all teams, not just the few media darlings. The east coast bias is sickening and disgusting and turns a lot of people (myself included) off.

1.) I don't live in KC

2.) The rest of the country has way way way more people than New York.

3.) Apparently people DO care because ESPNs ratings are going down the toilet

Well, clearly their market analysts know best.

How many of you care what's going on with the Charlotte Bobcats or the Washington Wizards? What about the Arizona Cardinals, anyone dying to hear the latest?

Right, because talking about the KC teams will surely spark a ratings bonanza.

This is the truth.

I'm so glad they're getting serious competition here in a month or so. Maybe it will force them to put some interesting shows on air and push out some of these hack broadcaster/journalists I'm sick to death of seeing.

No, but not looping the exact same SportsCenter for 7 hours a day might help.

Hard to call it "competition" when they aren't going to have any major sports to broadcast. Hard to imagine what they'll put on there. Maybe old re-runs of the "Strongman Competitions"

I tune into national sports media to hear about all the teams. Not just my team. I get that hot teams and hot stories will get more airtime. But when ESPN shoves yankees and red sox downs our throats even when they don't matter, this what happens.

So congrats to ESPN for targeting all those east coast viewers. They just did it at the expense of 30+% of their ratings.

The America's Cup. That used to be on all day long after the Sportscenters. Also pro-wrestling.
