    How do you decide the “rank” when a group of shows have the same rating?…18/49.
    Thanks


  2. Jason

    Do you have the ratings for Professional Fighters League on ESPN2 at 9pm EST

    thanks

      Sorry, we don’t provide ratings for sporting events with numbers too low to hit either our weekly Skedball post or the night’s Top 150. There are just too many of them.
