Watching eSports on the telly

I've been to a couple of gaming tournaments to support a friend and it was fun to watch in person. There was a ton of energy in the room and it was nice to chat with other gamers. However, I think it would be a bit boring to watch eSports on the telly, no matter how much ESPN, Disney, and other companies push the idea. Do you think it's a viable idea for expanding interest in eSports? Is it as boring as I think it is to watch?

I don't see how it could translate over into the medium of television. I get the tournaments in arena's simply because of the big screens they show the games on, but the telly? I think it would flop.

I don't watch it because Overwatch isn't my game, but apparently some of the big matches air on ESPN, ESPN2, Disney, and ABC. At least that's where it airs in the United States.
