An average of 37,000 people have watched the Dodgers this week on their new television home, SportsNet LA, according to Nielsen.

That pales in comparison to the first two games last season on Fox-owned Prime Ticket, both of which averaged around 300,000 viewers.

Of course, Prime Ticket is available everywhere while SportsNet LA is currently only on Time Warner Cable, which is handing distribution for the channel.

Angel ratings, meanwhile, are off to a strong start. Monday's and Tuesday's games had well over 100,000 viewers.

Earlier Thursday, Time Warner Cable indicated that DirecTV, the biggest area distributor not carrying the Dodgers, had walked away from the negotiating table. DirecTV said that is not true and that it is still ready to try to make a deal.
