More New Yorkers to see BCS than Fairbanks people

In the wake of the BCS' announcement that it will move its bowl games to ESPN in January of 2011, here is an interesting list from our friend/rival Barry Horn in Dallas of the markets with the least pay TV penetration.

(For comparison purposes, last time I checked the New York market's figure was at around 95 percent, well above the national average.)

Texas is well represented on the list, but the least cable/satellite-friendly market of all is Fairbanks, Alaska, which is a shame because people there tend to have time to kill indoors in winter.

I visited Fairbanks several times during my two years working in Alaska, and was at the famed Elbow Room on a couple of occasions.

But that's another story.
