With few exceptions, football is still kings by a large margin. Big time college football and NFL will dominate the air waves starting real soon.

Depends. If your city is in the middle of October baseball, it's just as popular in many markets. For instance, I don't think the Rams will dominate in October in St. Louis.

I'm speaking overall across the country with exceptions to places like St. Louis and maybe a few others. I know baseball is king in St. Louis.

In every single city listed so far, football is much bigger than baseball. The popularity gap between football and other team sports in America is vast, even in unexpected places (like St Louis).

My apologies. I missed your qualifier by saying with few exceptions.

Cincinnati belongs in the conversation; but I wonder if that would be the case if the Bengals were not such a perennial dumpster fire.
