Rams, Given Circumstances, Had Decent St. Louis TV Ratings

Nielsen says an average of 17.2 percent of homes in the market with a TV tuned in to their games. While that is better than only three other seasons in their local tenure, Rams games were the highest-rated program of the week on St. Louis television the vast majority of the time (they were beaten by Cards-Cubs playoffs one week).

That's not bad for a team that has had an average record of 6-9 in its local life and had only four winning seasons.
