The Ticket Edges The Fan In Dallas’ November Book

Jason Barrett

Published

on

The November ratings are in, and in the all-important category of Men 25-54, The Ticket has finished slightly ahead of The Fan in Dallas. The Ticket produced a 5.3 rating. The Fan did a 5.2 and ESPN 103.3 was in third with a 2.8.

Monday through Friday during the prime hours of 6A-7P when talk shows occupy the majority of air time, The Ticket was even stronger with a 6.5. Much of that success comes from The Musers who were once again delivering double digits in morning drive. The Fan finished with a 5.2 during prime and ESPN 103.3 turned in a 2.9.

Supporters of The Ticket suggest that The Fan is only within striking distance because the station holds the rights to the Rangers and Cowboys. That is a flawed argument though considering the station’s midday and afternoon shows win the head to head battle and the majority of leading sports stations around the country largely feature the same mix of great talk shows and play by play deals. If anything, they deserve credit for landing those partnerships.

That said, The Ticket gets the nod for November, and their morning show is performing on a different level right now than the rest of the market. One thing to be aware of, The Fan sits #1 overall with Men 18-34. How that impacts future ratings battles remains to be seen.

Individual Show Ratings For November:

The Musers (Ticket), 6-10 a.m. – 10.4

Ben & Skin (Fan), 3-7 p.m. – 6.7

The Hardline (Ticket), 3-7 p.m. – 5.2

G-Bag Nation (Fan), 10 a.m.-3 p.m. – 5.0

BaD Radio (Ticket), noon-3 p.m. – 4.3

Norm & Donovan (Ticket), 10 a.m.-noon – 4.1

Mike & Mike (ESPN 103.3), 5-9 a.m. – 4.0

Shan & R.J. (Fan), 6-10 a.m. – 3.8

Cowlishaw & Mosley (ESPN 103.3), 3-6 p.m. – 2.6

Dennis & Friedo (ESPN 103.3) 11 a.m.-3 p.m. – 2.2

Dan Le Batard (ESPN 103.3), 9-11 a.m. – 1.8
