2012 Scripps National Spelling Bee Final - Most-Viewed Ever on Cable Television

Thursday night's Scripps National Spelling Bee Final on ESPN, won by 14 year-old Snigdha Nandipati from San Diego, was seen by an average audience of 1.06 million viewers, based on a 0.8 rating (802,000 household impressions), making it the most-watched Spelling Bee Final ever on cable television, according to the Nielsen Company.
