Southeastern Conference football has always been of utmost importance to each school's fans and to the region itself, but the television ratings from the SEC on CBS brand are continuing to show a growing interest in the South's best sporting product.
Last Saturday's primetime game between LSU and Alabama on CBS garnered an average national household rating/share of 6.9/12 according to a network release, which is the second highest-rated game of the 2013 season behind the Alabama-Texas A&M game. The game that was the rematch of Johnny Manziel vs. Alabama received a 8.6/19 rating/share on CBS on Sept. 14. The LSU-Alabama game had a one percent ratings increase from last year, and remains a steady ratings-getter for CBS every year. Through 9 weeks, CBS's average of 6.4 million viewers is the most watched season of SEC football since their package began in 2001.no comments
