VERSUS Record Ratings Don’t Translate Into Record Viewers

From NHL super-agent Allan Walsh on Twitter:

VERSUS earned an 0.6 cable rating and 477,000 viewers for Flyers-Caps game on Tues night, the net’s highest-rated NHL reg season gm ever.”

This does not beat the 501,000 viewers Caps-Bruins drew.  However, it is #2 this season, and the 3rd game VERSUS has done to do an 0.5 or better.

We don’t have the ratings yet for Wild-Blackhawks on Monday or the games from last week (working on it) but after the jump, check out our updated VERSUS game-by-game ratings this season.

A Note

We’ll admit, we completely lost track on doing our NHL on cable feature this week.  The 4-part series will debut on Monday.  Apologies to anyone looking forward to it.
