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.

    How about a little lesson on conservation from Willie the Cat. Willie starts unrolling all of the paper until it is all on the floor. But you have to watch what happens next in this viral video.

    In 2013 the HTC One (M7) was one of my favs, so I was excited to see what the next gen model would be have in store. One word, "impressive!" Beautifully crafted, possibly the best on the market. Behold: HTC's One (M8)
