Alliance of American Football debuts with strong ratings

For the inaugural game, the Alliance of American Football averaged 2.913 million viewers between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. Fans like high-scoring and close games, and neither of the first two AAF games were that.

The AAF earned the same overnight rating as ABC's competing Thunder-Rockets NBA regular season game. Saturday night won't be the last time I watch the AAF.

Led by head coach Steve Spurrier, the Orlando Apollos beat the Atlanta Legends 40-6 thanks to a two touchdown performance by quarterback Garrett Gilbert. He connected with receiver Rashad Ross for two touchdowns, and Ross had a team-best 103 yards.

Orlando special? Orlando special!

It remains to be seen if the relatively-solid ratings continue or if they were merely a result of initial curiosity. Once an National Football League season comes to an end on the first Sunday in February, fans of the spot have to go months before any college or professional games occur.

The new league also made waves in the app store, topping the recent download charts for both the Apple Store and Google Play.
