UConn-Oregon State Semifinal Delivers Strong Overnight Rating

National Semifinals Up on WatchESPN

The NCAA Women's Final Four National Final between top-seeded UConn and No. 2 seed Oregon State - played Sunday, April 3, from Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis - delivered a 1.7 overnight rating on ESPN, up 31 percent from last year's first semifinal tilt between South Carolina and Notre Dame (1.3). The game is also up 6 percent over UConn's 2015 semifinal game (1.6), the second of the ESPN doubleheader.

Digital Numbers

On WatchESPN, UConn vs. Oregon State experienced a 70 percent increase in average minute audience, 32 percent increase in total unique viewers and 59 percent increase in total minutes viewed compared to the first semifinal game in 2015 (South Carolina vs. Notre Dame).

The day was coupled with Major League Baseball Opening Day, including a 2.1 overnight rating for the New York Mets-Kansas City Royals World Series rematch on ESPN. It matched the best Opening Night game since 2010.

The two National Semifinal games - which also included No. 4 seed Syracuse against No. 10 seed Washington on ESPN2 - earned a combined 1.4 overnight rating, comparable to ESPN's doubleheader in 2014. The second semifinal delivered a 1.0 rating.
