    It would be hilarious if one reason for the low ratings was the Rockets building an insurmountable lead in the first half.

    outside of rockets fans, no one wants to watch James Harden play basketball. It's been imprinted in their minds, just read any social media comments on Harden

    What? Lmao

    If they dont want to watch Harden basketball, they are not real basketball fans.

    They know nothing about basketball.
    Just a bunch of pure haters.

    Even in Houston people barely care about the rockets. My friends follow the rockets, but my older colleagues just don't care.

    It's really unfair to call it "scrub football," @Carl Herrera.

    Unfair to scrubs, that is.

    Even the owner doesn't care enough about the Rockets to prioritize winning over Luxury Tax Savings. .

    Football scrubs beat Tillman's scrubs?
    Big deal.
    Bob O'Brien's scrubs beats Tillman's scrubs too.
    Houston fans care more about Bob O'Brien's scrubs than Tillman's scrubs anyways.

    They care more about who the backup left guard is than a okc houston game.

    Can we even assess popularity and viewership based on ratings anymore? Do they take into account people watching via league pass, or more importantly bootlegging a stream? The NFL is lagging in most major metrics aside from Nielsen ratings. With the politics involved, concerns over CTE, and continued deficit in international market penetration compared to basketball and baseball, they should be concerned.

    Its opening weekend for that league. I doubt if those numbers will remain high. Doubt if that football league will have high numbers this weekend and might not get a second season.
