STAT SHEET The College Football Playoff system has proven lucrative for ESPN. The Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl (both held on New Year’s Day), which served as the semifinal games were the two most-viewed programs in cable television history. (By comparison, last year’s Super Bowl XLVIII attracted 111.3 million viewers, but was carried by FOX, not a cable channel) ESPN reportedly paid $7.3 billion for the rights to host the playoffs through 2025. For more on the new system (and the money involved), see page 26.
