Last week, when fans saw that USFL viewership dropped 57% from Week 1 to Week 2, it seemed like things were looking pretty bad going forward for the spring league.
The USFL played a pair of games on Saturday, the third day of the NFL draft. That seemed like a bad idea, but it turned out the football starved nation is really loving the product.
The Bandits vs. Gamblers game had an average audience of 825,000 viewers.
The late-night game between the Stallions and Breakers, which was broadcasted on Peacock, had an average audience of 1.114 million viewers.
Through three weeks of the season, the Generals sit atop the standings in the North at 2-1.
The only undefeated team in the league is the Stallions, which is not shocking since the fans come out in the thousands to support the team.
