From Sports Media Watch:

Ratings for the NHL All Star Game rose for the second straight year, but cannot begin to approach the Winter Classic.

Versus drew a 0.8 overnight rating for coverage of the NHL All Star Game on Sunday, up 12% from last year, according to USA Today.

Yes, we know, the rating is ultimately poor in comparison to many events, but with the disinterest among hockey fans as far the All-Star Game, trending up is all the NHL needs to hear for the game to continue.  Combined with the 1.5 Million on CBC, around 2.3 Million folks likely watched the game.  More on the CBC ratings in a little bit.
