The USFL is holding its own.

Via Fox executive V.P. Michael Mulvihill, the Week Four USFL games on Fox and NBC experienced 12-percent growth over the Week Three games televised by broadcast TV.

The average audiences on three-letter, over-the-air networks continue to land in the range of high six figures and low seven figures. That’s good enough to get the USFL to 2023.

That’s when it will get very interesting, with the third iteration of the XFL (to undoubtedly be televised by ABC and ESPN, which has completely ignored the existence of the USFL) entering the scene and competing with the reconstituted (sort of) USFL.

  2. But there was like 7 people at the game. Looked awful.

    We watched a lot of games in 2020 without fans. Wasn’t the end of the world…

    Who cares if there are people at the game or not? It’s about the gameplay, not who is sitting in the stands!
