BREAKING: Rangers-Bruins Cracks 1.0 on NBC
March 9, 2009 5 Comments
NBC must be super excited about having another Ranger game to air next week. The network’s telecast of New York’s victory over Boston drew a 1.0/3 in the 12:30 timeslot, according to Sports Business Daily (reg. required). It’s about even with the comparable Pens-Capitals telecast from last year, and should equal or beat the final 0.8 rating Pittsburgh-Washington drew a year ago. It was tied for the third lowest-rated sports telecast of the weekend, beating out ABC’s college hoops pre-game show and NBC’s coverage of snowboarding, and tied with ABC’s Saturday college basketball coverage and it’s NBA Countdown program.
The NHL On NBC returns next Sunday with the Rangers hosting the Philadelphia Flyers.
