The number of Sixers fans is probably roughly equivalent with the number of Flyers fans. The difference between the two fan bases is that Flyers fans are generally middle to upper class and Sixers fans are generally lower to middle class.

Thus, when the Flyers are home I wouldn't be surprised if the Sixers get a better TV rating because the Flyers fans can afford to sell out the Wach (even when they are bad, like 06'-07').

That being said, it makes ZERO sense tonight since the Flyers are away from a ratings standpoint. The only thing I can think of is that they are trying to draw the wealthier Flyers fans away from their satellite TV and FIOS back to Xfinity by foregoing them HD.
