Here's A Look At ESPN's NFL Viewership Ratings This Year

TV ratings for the NFL are up this year.

Donald Trump had been touting the NFL’s declining TV ratings on Twitter last week, but the president’s comments seem to have had a positive effect on the league’s bottom line.

Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch released ESPN's ratings for the year, and the numbers are looking good for ESPN.

Through four weeks of the NFL season, ESPN's average viewership is up nearly 600,000 people per game.

It's important to note that during this time last year, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were in the middle of campaigning for the presidency.

Regardless, it looks like protests have not quelled the average NFL fans from watching their team.
