Hawks TV ratings update

Here’s the Atlanta Journal-Constitution with an update on Atlanta Hawks TV ratings for the 2019-20 NBA season:

Ratings have increased 49% in the Atlanta TV market for Hawks telecasts on Fox Sports Southeast, compared to the same point last season — the third largest percentage increase in the NBA, according to a Sports Business Journal analysis of Nielsen data.Nevertheless, the Hawks’ average rating of 0.89 in their home market is the seventh lowest among the 27 teams included in the study. The Hawks’ rating means 0.89 of every 100 TV households in the Atlanta market, or slightly more than 20,000 homes, watch the team’s telecasts on average.

While star guard Trae Young has gotten the Hawks extra attention this season, the recent addition of center Clint Capela, who forms an interesting frontcourt alongside power forward John Collins, should create additional interest in the squad.

The NBA regular season resumes Thursday.
