What’s the biggest television event aside from the Superbowl? Is it the VMAs? Nope, not even close. Is it PBS fundraising week? Certainly not. It’s the presidential debates of course! MTV would never put new content up against the Superbowl, so why would they make Battle of the Seasons compete against the debates? Your guess is as good as mine, but Battle of the Seasons did mange to hold on to a fair amount of ground.
TVByTheNumbers reports that Battle of the Seasons pulled in a total of 1.106 million viewers with a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic. Now the best ratings ever, but not terrible considering the circumstances.
