Their other properties are making up for their ESPN flop. I wouldn't be surprised to see them try to sell it off. They also own ABC which is tanking on it Bowl viewership since the playoff was instituted.
What bowl games are on ABC? They have a large regular season schedule of CFB with declining ratings but I thought all bowl games including FBS playoff games were on ESPN but perhaps I am mistaken.
LSU was on ABC with the Citrus Bowl. The Las Vegas Bowl Was another I remember. Best to google the entire TV 2016 schedule to get the rest. Most were on ESPN but ABC did carry a few.
Thanks for the prompt response and answering my question. ABC carried a few while ESPN carried 10x more including the most important New Year's Day games and CFB playoffs. Real point is it doesn't matter at all what ABC's bowl viewership is whether boom or bust. It just needed New Year's Day program filler after showing Rose Bowl parade since it had migrated Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl to ESPN. Disney will likely spin off/sell ESPN as you explain.
