    The following clubs have a local TV broadcast deal :

    Sacramento Republic FC
    Oklahoma City Energy FC
    Louisville City FC
    FC Cincinnati
    San Antonio FC

    Anybody know where we might find what their ratings are from week to week?

    Most local TV stations do not pay to get ratings for individual shows on a weekly basis. They will usually just do them a couple of times a year to set ad rates.

    Other than the local media potentially including such information in a notes column (if it's good), you're probably not going to find that information readily. There's certainly no resource I know of that lets you mine for it.

    If you know someone working for one of the TV stations involved, you might be able to get it. Some markets are "metered" or "overnight" markets where data is generated daily, but you're still not going to get it unless you are paying for it, most of the time.

    The league creating centralized feeds has certainly helped, as some clubs can offer the games fully packaged programming, home and away.

    Which was the point of the exercise.

    Amazing how much soccer people can watch on TV in 2017.
