Who watches Leicester?

When Leicester are on the telly who bothers to watch? Below are the viewing figures for the last 10 Leicester matches broadcast on live TV in the UK. The numbers don’t lend themselves to a particular narrative, but I think they’re interesting nonetheless.

    How about adding the attendance figures and the applicable
    ratio to the number of TV viewers? Not sure if this gives an
    interesting twist to the figures?

      That’s a good idea. I’ll give it a go.

        interesting stuff. I’ve never had any idea how many people watch any games on sky let alone the championship ones. shame there is no record for the bbc game vs coventry. i’d guess that was the biggest just for the fact that it was on terrestrial tv
