Over 2.1 Million Viewers Tune In to 2009 WSOP Finale

Over 2.1 million viewers tuned in to the 2009 World Series of Poker finale to witness Joe Cada of Michigan set the record as the youngest champion ever. Cada is just twenty one years of age and winning the 2009 WSOP Main Event made him the newest young player to capture the title since Peter Eastgate did it last year at the age of 22.

The millions of viewers tuned in to ESPN’s same-day coverage of the World Series of Poker which took place on Tuesday November 10th. Even though millions were tuning in, it was still a decrease in ratings from last year’s WSOP finale. The broadcast earned a 1.8 household coverage rating in an average of 1,806,113 households. Last year’s ratings were 1.9 compared to the 1.8 of this year.

31 broadcasts took place over the fifteen week schedule of the WSOP coverage at ESPN this year which averaged a 1.0 rating which was even with last year. Averages from households and viewership were increased by nine and seven percent from 2008. A press release stating all of the ratings information from ESPN also stated that the Male 25-54 demographic increased by 13% from 2008, which is a large jump.
