Ouch! Mets 2013 TV Ratings Drop 31.6 Percent Over 2012
According to Neil Best of Newsday, only 1.54 percent of homes were tuned in to Mets games on SNY this season on average.
That figure is down from 2.25 in 2012 and represents a drop of a whopping 31.6 percent. The 1.54 percent is the lowest viewership percentage in the history of SNY.
Best also adds that viewership did experience a modest bump whenever Matt Harvey started a game.
That’s almost unbelievable and almost a third lower than 2012 which was already 20 percent down from 2011. That means the Mets have lost over half of their fan viewership in just two years. Wow…
As I said in my post last night, the fans are tuning the Mets out, and from a fan perspective, this team is at rock bottom.
