I tried to plot the AMR (average minute ratings) for the first 3 games for each of the last 5 seasons of the PBA. In the previous 4 years, the Opening Game was on a Sunday and the next 2 games were on a Wednesday. Only this year did the season start on a Saturday with the next two games on the Sunday.

This is an encouraging start for this season as more people watched the first 3 games compared to the previous 4 opening games. This is especially promising considering that Barangay Ginebra and Purefoods, the two most popular teams haven't played yet.

We will have to see if the good start in viewership can be sustained.



hi jude,

congrats! its hightime that the PBA fans enjoy the best TV coverage in years. i am so glad that the SERIOUSNESS in covering the PBA games is back! the league suffered a lot due to very poor TV coverage during the last 4 years. solar cs9's handling of the games brings back memories of PBA TV coverage in the 70s and 80s. and how i love it, solar's coverage is full of class! covering the games in english and not in "salitang kalye" is really refereshing! keep up the good work jude! the PBA is back with a big bang, thanks to solar cs9!!!

Kaboom, any news on the PBA's new radio broadcaster? I have been asked by fans on when the league's games will be heard again on the air. Please update us.

sana wag naman jude na puro english, sana mixed though i agree ung salitang kalye dapat wala and alam naman ng lahat kung sino yun. and request lang sana eh mag karoon ng mga flashback, trivia, and medyo magandang klase ng slo-mo replay, parang ung sa nba, di ko alam tawag eh, super slo-mo replay ung parang mala matrix kind of slo mo, ung na kasi ung klase ng slo mo replay sa nba. sana magkaroon din ng "wired" ung coverage nyo parang sa nba, ung may mike mga coaches and players pinaririnig during break. haha malamang di pwede si yeng dito kasi puro bleep ang lalabas.

and lastly sana jude magkaroon din kayo ng pba greatest game, mga greatest game from 75 to present i'm sure andami manunuod nun.

sana consider nyo suggestion ko kasi to be honest, aside sa mga makabagong tech ng nba coveror, malayong malayo tayo sa broadcast style ng nba, sana makahabol man lang tayo ng onti.

by the way hope you bring sev back into the fold.

Another key reason why people try to make use of generic versions of Viagra
is the decreased cost involved. This makes people less likely to be concerned if the medication is not quite as effective as the Viagra UK
created by Pfizer. The manner in which many people purchase generic Cheap Cialis
can also decrease the ability to reclaim the cost if the product is found to be ineffective.

The dials are extremely legible - more so that many other modern replica watches . This is hands to decorative, though uncluttered Replica Cartier Watches dials that have lume applied and polished applied hour markers, as well as large polished hands. Like many replica watche the case is all highly polishing for that signature glossy-all-over look.
