(SOURCE) The tv ratings from the USA 7’s Tournament, this past weekend, have come in and the news is good. Sort of. The Nielsen Ratings recorded that the tournament brought in a 35% increase from last year, giving the tournament its highest rating of 1.0. Even though the rating in comparison to other sports is extremely low, this is at least a positive sign for the tournament. Considering that this tournament has only been televised on NBC since 2011, it has seen steady growth every year. Let’s hope that this three-day tournament continues to build from there.
