Debut of Pat McAfee Show on ESPN Brought Big Numbers to Network



Pat McAfee

To no surprise, The Pat McAfee Show kicked off its move to ESPN with big numbers.

According to the ESPN PR Twitter (X) account, Thursday’s debut episode earned 1.7 million cumulative viewers across their linear and digital platforms.

Here are some of the other notable achievements from the first episode.

  • Most-streamed studio show of the day
  • Most-viewed ESPN on YouTube show in 5 months
  • ESPN App &’s 3 most-viewed VOD segments

McAfee then followed all of that with another episode on Friday and will be back at it on Monday afternoon and every week day from then on.

One important reminder for longtime McAfee fans is the show will be aired on a delay to manage the cursing. ESPN is owned by Disney, so McAfee and his crew will have to calm it down with the laid-back profanity everyone enjoys. McAfee has mentioned that he will try to cut down on the f-bombs but doesn’t want to get rid of it completely. There’s an alternative way to watch the Pat McAfee Show uncensored on YouTube.

    Pat does not need the foul language to get viewers. Clean it up or get off the air!
