XFL TV ratings once again dropped by double digits, while attendance was down for the first time this week.

In terms of television ratings, the four weekend games were down 14% from the previous weekend, and down 56% from week 1. The four games averaged 1.38 million viewers, compared to 1.61 million viewers the week before. It should be noted that the Sunday late game aired on ESPN 2 for the first time ever. Although that did bring the average down, it was a big success for ESPN 2, scoring 1.030 million viewers. The cable numbers were actually up from the prior week, however the drop in the ABC game was significant.

In apples to apples numbers, the Saturday game on ABC averaged 1.558 million viewers, down 24% from the week prior, while the late Saturday game was down only 5.9% on FOX.

The total attendance for the games in week 4 was 70,224 fans, the lowest since the opening weekend. The Saturday game in Los Angeles was the least-attended game till date with only 12,116 fans. With Los Angeles already sporting two NFL teams, the market has been poor for the XFL.
