ESPN Lands Highest Prime Time U.S. Open Rating Ever

US Open Amazing Ratings

Golf is drawin' the numbers these days, daaaaang!

ESPN’s prime time coverage of the second round of the 112th U.S. Open earned the network’s highest rating and largest audience EVER for a regular round of play!

That's nuts! It was shown 5-10 p.m. ET and averaged 3.6 million viewers and a 2.9 household coverage rating, and was the fifth-largest ever for a golf telecast on cable.

If we're to ignore the "prime time" part of that, we can only came close to the largest audience ever for any U.S. Open telecast — which was a Monday playoff in 2008 with 4.2 rating and 4.8 million viewers.

We're not implying anything here, but we wonder how many of those viewers were watching to take naps.

LOLz!
