Did anyone tune in to CBS on Sunday to watch the World Series of Video Games’ Louisville, Ky., tour stop? Yeah, that’s right. Video games were broadcast on network TV on a Sunday afternoon in the middle of summer.
There were plenty of articles previewing this apparent first, but I’ve yet to see anyone report on the broadcast, prompting the question: Did any one watch it?
CBS’ schedule lists another WSVG broadcast coming up Aug. 19, and the WSVG itself had a blog item back in May crowing about the four-episode deal it linked with the network.
I’ve put a call in to the folks at CBS Sports to ask whether they were satisfied with the initial broadcast and whether this might join the Masters and March Madness as regular events on the broadcaster’s calendar.
