(WSCR) No surprise here: without star Derrick Rose, the Bulls’ television ratings have drastically fallen.

According to a report, through the Bulls’ first 32 games this season, the team’s ratings on Comcast SportsNet Chicago are down 49 percent from last season’s final regular season average.

The report, from Crain’s Chicago Business, indicates that drop follows a 30 percent year-over-year ratings increase from last season.

Meanwhile, through the 14 games WGN-TV has carried, ratings are down 45 percent from its regular season average last year.
