    The numbers are, to me, surprising, yet not. Nathans is a go to viewing whether in person and on ESPN or just on ESPN. It shows the interest in competitive eating.

    Surprisingly low. What else were people doing? It was a Saturday, a lot of people aren’t working, social distancing…what more could you ask for? Perfect conditions for a record-breaking TV audience.
