Liz Habib Sports List: Lakers, Clippers & Dodgers on TV

Updated:

You aren't watching the Lakers anymore.  You can't watch the Dodgers...yet. But why aren't you watching the Clippers?!!!!!!

So I don't blame you,  you aren't watching the Lakers on TV anymore. The ratings for Laker games are down almost 50%.  No Kobe,  no Nash, no playoffs.  Why waste your time?   

According to Variety, through mid-March, Los Angeles Lakers NBA games averaged 199,000 viewers on Time Warner Cable SportsNet, down a whopping 49% from last year. Last year the average was 390,000 viewers per game.

But here's what I don't get:

Again, according to Variety, you also aren't watching the Clippers.  Viewership has also declined double-digits for the Clippers, who have averaged 96,000 viewers on Fox Sports Prime Ticket — down 21% from last year when they averaged 121,000 viewers. 

The Clippers are one of the best teams in the NBA and I think Blake Griffin should be in the discussion for MVP!  How and why aren't you watching this team!???? 

And while we're on the topic...

I know why you're not watching the Dodgers and I'm not happy about it either.  I am a Direct TV subscriber.  After Time Warner went to black on my TV during the SUPER BOWL!!!!!!!!! I dumped them, and frankly I don't think I'll ever go back.  No matter what.  I'm just lucky I am a sports anchor at the FOX station in LA and we can tune in games from all over the world (for the most part) and so I can watch the Dodgers (when I'm working.)  I'm sorry if you can't.  I think it stinks.

Let me know what you think.

    Rat poison may be responsible for the sorry condition of a wild mountain lion in LA's Griffith Park. The mountain lion is known to the National Park Service as ‘P-22'.
