BREAKING NEWS: Bruins-Sharks Draws Biggest Regular-Season Audience in NHL on VERSUS History
February 12, 2009 5 Comments
According to John Ryan of the San Jose Mercury News:
The Sharks’ 5-2 victory against the Bruins on Tuesday was the highest-rated and most-watched regular-season game in Versus’ four years with the NHL. It drew a 0.54 household rating nationally (550,000 viewers) and was 69 percent above the network’s average for the season.
This is great news for the network and the league that an inter-conference Stanley Cup Final preview like this is drawing great ratings. If Sharks-Bruins is drawing what Red Wings-Penguins did on VERSUS earlier in the season, than I’m certain the NHL won’t have a problem with either team moving far into the playoffs. We’ll see if we can get more details on this later in the day. Stay tuned.
