ACC Football Viewership Stats 2013-2018
ACC Conference Games by year
(excluding games aired on ESPNU and FS2, of which there are none for the ACC in the latter case but could be for another conference when I do that comparison next month)

2018 - 32 games; 54.893 million viewers; 1.715 million per game
2017 - 30 games; 69.252 million viewers; 2.308 million per game
2016 - 31 games; 75.791 million viewers; 2.445 million per game
2015 - 23 games; 54.876 million viewers; 2.386 million per game
2014 - 24 games; 68.836 million viewers; 2.868 million per game
2013 - 24 games; 61.714 million viewers; 2.572 million per game

ACC TV Contract Games
(Includes all conference games above plus out-of-conference games either at home or at a neutral site which made determining which conference technically owned the rights an educated guess on my part)


2018 - 41 games; 83.014 million viewers; 2.025 million per game
2017 - 41 games; 112.716 million viewers; 2.749 million per game
2016 - 40 games; 112.333 million viewers; 2.808 million per game
2015 - 34 games; 100.141 million viewers; 2.945 million per game
2014 - 33 games; 103.039 million viewers; 3.122 million per game
2013 - 31 games; 89.754 million viewers; 2.895 million per game


ALL games involving at least ACC team shown on CBS, ABC, FOX, NBC, ESPN, ESPN2, FS1

2018 - 49 games; 98.501 million viewers; 2.010 million per game
2017 - 50 games; 132.868 million viewers; 2.656 million per game
2016 - 49 games; 133.308 million viewers; 2.721 million per game
2015 - 44 games; 122.479 million viewers; 2.784 million per game
2014 - 45 games; 128.688 million viewers; 2.860 million per game
2013 - 36 games; 102.206 million viewers; 2.839 million per game

As always, I am sure there are a couple of minor errors (there always are), but per usual, I doubt any error I made will have much of an overall impact.

Make what you will of the data, other than the obvious - 2018 was a really BAD, BAD year for the ACC.

Cheers,
Neil

RE: ACC Football Viewership Stats 2013-2018
2016 was the year Clemson won the National Championship game and the ACC was the consensus best conference in college football when the ACC killed it in the bowl games. Not surprisingly that's our best year ratings-wise too.

So you're saying when ACC football is good, people will watch it?

Yes and when ACC football is bad, like ACC conference games this past year, viewers will tune out in droves.

If FSU isn't in a good place, ACC ratings suffer greatly.

FSU is the ratings horse for the ACC

True. FSU gets higher ratings than any other team, and the only one that's close is Miami.

For the past six years the only one close has been Clemson, but if Miami ever got back to their former glory days, the Hurricanes would most likely be second. Still, at this point I'd settled for getting Miami back to 80% of what the program once was. 03-wink
