Is that any better than the former Sat night average ratings?
Looking at a couple of Saturday night games from 2013 show lower figures (under 100k) than the Thursday night games get. It's very difficult to compare like with like though. You have to bear in mind that the old Saturday games tended to get shunted off to Sky Sports 3, and were invariably up against Championship football, and a host of other live sports.
What is apparent is that the darts has grown quite dramatically even from a couple of years back, and is outrating the Thursday night SL games by some margin now. The figures for tonights game will be interesting as Wigan v Warrington should be one of the big audience pullers of the season.
