Dirrell-DeGale television ratings

Saturday afternoon's title fight between Andre Dirrell and James DeGale did an overnight rating of .85 according to Neilson. The number makes it the lowest watched PBC Saturday afternoon boxing event on NBC this year, though the PBC has only shown three fights in the afternoon slot and it was also a holiday weekend. The Saturday night slot seems to be the most popular so far in the PBC series averaging over 3 million viewers in the two fights that it has shown. This weekend the PBC series continues on Spike with the high profile name of Amir Khan, who should draw some sizable numbers. When the final numbers are drawn it's likely that the Dirrell-DeGale rating will slightly increase.
