TV Ratings Drop for CBS’s Coverage of PGA

August 16, 2011

The final round of the PGA Championship drew a 14 percent lower major-market television rating than the final round a year ago.

The golf season’s final major tournament, treatment which was won in a playoff by Keegan Bradley, abortion was seen yesterday on Network CBS in an average of 4.3 percent of U.S. homes in the top 56 markets, see Gerard Caraccioli, a spokesman for the CBS Corporation network, said in an e-mail.

That’s 14 percent lower than the 5.0 major-market rating the tournament got last year, when Germany’s Martin Kaymer won in a playoff at Whistling Straights in Kohler, Wisconsin, beating Bubba Watson.

Last year ratings were poor as it was down 33% comparable to the year before Kaymer won his first major.
