Jaguars TV ratings haven't dropped significantly this season

New, comment

The Jaguars are currently 1-10, a franchise worst, and things don't look too encouraging with the Giants coming to town. But surprisingly, their TV ratings haven't dropped significantly.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are on pace to score the fewest points in franchise history, and there's a good chance they could finish with just one win, again the fewest in franchise history.

But despite an on-field product that leaves much to be desired, TV ratings haven't dipped significantly.

According to Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union, people are still tuning in to watch the Jaguars and the audience hasn't waned as much as you might think.

Below is a chart outlining each week's opponent, rating, share, and estimated viewing households. Rating refers to the average percentage of televisions tuned to a program at any one moment. Share is the percentage of televisions that tuned in at all.

Opponent Rating Share Households
at Eagles 22.9 39 150,000
at Washington 20.5 38 138,000
vs Colts* 16.1* 32 109,000
at Chargers 21.7 35 143,000
vs Steelers 22.7 40 150,000
at Titans 22.3 40 147,000
vs Browns 22.1 41 148,000
vs Dolphins 21.0 40 139,000
at Bengals 19.0 32 125,000
vs Cowboys 20.8 37 137,000
at Colts 20.3 36 134,000
