Fox Sports San Diego's Padres programming is up across the board. Last week we learned that the actual game ratings grew 22%. Today we see that the peripheral Padres related programming also saw increases.
"Producing dynamic programming that educates, informs, and entertains our viewers is a top priority," said Jeff Byle, Executive Producer, FOX Sports San Diego. "I’m very pleased with our groups’ efforts."
One day if the Padres can slap together a few wins and generate even the slightest bit of excitement the ratings are going to be off the chain. These ratings took off with an off-season win, imagine if that energy had lasted more than two weeks into the season. I know, right? Yet still the ratings went up.
I canceled my cable and traded in my DVR this season so I ended up watching the games in low definition and never bothered to figure out when these other shows were on. Padres POV was the big winner apparently with a 35% increase. I swear if these shows had a set time and weren't pushed around due to live events they'd be so much more popular. How was new host Ally Sturm? Good, good.
Padres Live Postgame grew 30%. I never stuck around for this show, by the end of the game I had nothing left to give to FSSD.
Now, Padres Social Hour I watched pretty regularly and it drew 29% more viewers. I like that there is fan interaction on this show and I'd watch it again. I'm looking forward to who they're going to have to replace Jesse, hopefully nobody lame.
I haven't watched #SDLive in years, yet its viewers grow in spite of my boycott. Good for them, they have a 26% increase.
FSSD just steamrolled their 2014 ratings, must feel good.
