The week 2 ratings are in for the XFL, and naturally, we saw a dip:
NY/DC (ABC) – 2.146 million
Tampa Bay/Seattle (FOX) – 2.342 million
Dallas/LA (ABC) – 2.397 million
St. Loius/Houston (FS1) – 1.359 million
Average – 2.061 million
While these may seem like a worrying result compared to week 1 (3.12 million), however, in week 1, we had those tuning in because it’s something new. Also important to note is that all 4 games in week 1 aired on highly available channels, including ESPN being included in most basic cable packages. Week 3 will be more pivotal for the real turnout to see where the baseline average will be.
