Sling TV Viewer Data – Monday Night Football Vs The Debate Who Won With Viewers




SlingSling TV has always been hesitant to release data on number of subscribers but today they give us a look behind the curtain at the viewership numbers of the Debate vs ESPN.

According to Sling TV, the debate had 68% more viewers than Monday Night Football, and CNN accounted for 53% of all Sling Orange viewership.


It also seemed that the debate was more exciting to viewers as more than 10x as many people watched the debate in its entirety than football on Sling Orange. Shockingly only 3% of Monday Night Football viewers watched the game from start to finish. Maybe they channel surfed to the debate during the commercials…
