The College Football Playoff Semifinal Games Were The 2 Most-Watched Shows In Cable TV History

A day after the inaugural College Football Playoff began, it's safe to say the idea was a good one. 

We got one great game - No. 4 Ohio State came from behind to top No. 1 Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, 42-35 - and one tremendous performance - No. 2 Oregon shellacked No. 3 Florida State, 59-20. 

America seemed to enjoy the contests quite a bit. The College Football Playoff semifinal games, televised on ESPN, were the two most-watched shows in the history of cable TV.
