Pittsburgh Shows Up Big For Pens-Flyers Showdown

The local ratings are in for Sunday’s NBC Game of the Week, and as usual, the Pittsburgh market put up a gaudy number.

The Steel City scored a 15.1/31 for the Penguins-Flyers game. The Battle of Pennsylvania was watched by nearly one of every three households with a television on in the Pittsburgh market. The game was notable for being the third game back for Sidney Crosby and a part of the Pens comeback chase for the Eastern Conference lead. Meanwhile, in Philadelphia, the game drew a somewhat less impressive 3.7/9. Though, it is always worth reminding you, Philadelphia is a much larger market than Pittsburgh.

The two rivals battle again on NBC in two weeks time, so it’ll be interesting to see if numbers go up or down for either city.
