Misery loves company for Mike Francesa's TV show
Of course, Joe Benigno is far from the only sports yakker to benefit from fans curious about his take in the wake of a local-team meltdown.
Take his WFAN colleague Mike Francesa, for example.
Sunday night's "Mike'd Up" on Ch. 4 averaged 5.0 percent of area households, benefiting partly from the strong Giants-game lead-in, but also from an event that happened earlier in the evening in Seattle.
Let's put it this way: The rating was the best for the show since Sept. 30, 2007, the night the baseball team that used to share a stadium with the Jets blew a playoff berth on the final day of the regular season.
(Big WatchDog kudos to the first person to identify the former Jet in the picture.)
