Yeah I don't know what the answer is there. Maybe the answer is to stop trying to chase huge ratings for the championship; honestly when only 2 teams are left, how can you expect the rest of the nation how aren't into those teams to care?
Football got lucky that its championship is the spectacle it is, maybe the answer for the other leagues is to not focus on drawing all the ratings to the championship, and making the rest of the season more interesting in giving the rest of the league a chance and making the playoffs more than some extra games for fans to watch while their team gets steamrolled by whatever the superstar team of the moment is.
