What most people who argue against this fail to appreciate is that college football doesn't need the diehards to tune in. Most are going to turn in to watch college football no matter who's playing. But to get the highest ratings, you need casual fans, and they're more likely to tune in when they they have a vested interest.

Thing is, though, the NFL "Super Wild Card Weekend" ratings were way off as well. This suggests that something beyond the structure of college football accounted for the steep decline in the CFP title game ratings.

I'm guessing the madness in DC played a roll. But let's not forget the semi's underperformed as well. Meanwhile the Peach was the only NY6 bowl that improved over historical ratings performance.

Yes, ratings have been bad in a lot of sports this year. Politics and the virus have made it a very different year.

As for the Peach, Georgia is a big TV draw. Their CFP title game vs Alabama is easily the highest-rated one since the first one, and that despite the fact that it was an all-SEC game.

Cincinnati played in the highest rated Peach bowl of all time. I don't doubt Georgia's following, but it's not like the Peach hasn't had big names many times before. Novelty has it's own value which is pretty obvious when you watch the MBB tourney. CFB has been missing out on the novelty factor and I believe we got a peak at the public's reaction to it in the Peach.
