"And the @NWSL? Up 493%. YOY. Not a typo."
-- Lisa Baird
, the NWSL commissioner, on her league's year-over-year increase in television ratings, in response to a Sports Media
Watch graph with year-over-year rating changes (2020 vs. 2019) of 18 U.S. sports events that didn't include the NWSL. (Ratings of 15 of the 18 events were down, and none up by more than 17 percent.)
