  • Just curious, in college football ratings, why does the ACC have the lowest media contract of the Top 5 Conferences when it appears to have the third largest viewership?

State of the Media 2011 Year in Sports

  1. 1. WELCOMEWelcome to Nielsen’s State of the Media: 2011 Year in Sports, a compilation of media highlights, advertiser trends andconsumer insights across leading sports properties. Nielsen’s “FANALYTICS” provides our industry with a wealth of consumerand market intelligence as we strive to get you closer to the fan and allow you to develop a deeper understanding of whatand how they “watch” sports content and what they “buy”. Nielsen is committed to meticulous tracking of fan sentiment,engagement, purchases and media consumption, helping brands understand the value and impact of their investment insports media and sponsorships and drive more effective decision-making.In a sports year unlike any other, 2011 will be remembered as much for the events that transpired “off the field” as on it. Laborbattles in the NBA and NFL, NCAA conference realignment and a number of high-profile scandals that rocked the collegesports world dominated many of the headlines on the sports pages. However, as you’ll see inside these pages, sports fans’passion for “the game” remains incredibly strong and sports proved how incredibly resilient it is as Americans flocked to TV,computers, tablets and mobile screens to follow their favorite players and teams in record numbers.Some of the highlights that transpired on the field in 2011 include: • The “Pack Is Back”: Aaron Rodgers finally stepped out of Brett Favre’s shadow and led the Packers to a victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV, the most watched television program in U.S. history. • UConn was ultimately crowned the men’s NCAA Basketball Champion but two Cinderella teams, Butler and VCU, created Madness in March and found themselves playing into April in the Final Four. • For the second year in a row, another Original Six franchise ended a long championship drought as the Boston Bruins won their first Stanley Cup since 1972 in a thrilling seven-game series against the Canucks. • The Miami Heat generated a lot of buzz and grabbed most of the headlines in the NBA this season, but in the end fell short in the NBA Finals against Dirk Nowitzki’s Mavericks. The Heat became America’s favorite team to hate and the Big 3 (James, Bosh and Wade) each saw their N-Scores and appeal with fans plummet over the course of the NBA season. • Hope Solo, Abby Wambach and Alex Morgan captured the imagination of Americans this summer with their thrilling run in the Women’s World Cup. • Despite being one strike away (twice) in Game 6 from their first World Series Championship, the Texas Rangers couldn’t close it out and the St. Louis Cardinals prevailed in one of the most memorable World Series over the past decade. • Tony Stewart ended Jimmie Johnson’s run at the top of NASCAR as he beat Carl Edwards to the checkered flag in an epic battle during the final race of the season at Homestead for the win and the Sprint Cup title.We hope you enjoy these highlights from across Nielsen’s wealth of consumer and media insights. Despite all of the “offthe field” craziness, 2011 continues to prove that sports content is among the most popular and engaging genres and wellpositioned to thrive in an increasingly fragmented media marketplace and rapidly evolving multi-screen world.Sincerely,Stephen MasterVice President, SportsNielsen ii
