BREAKING: Rangers-Bruins Cracks 1.0 on NBC

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.

    Thats because every year someone is CONVINCED that the Rangers are going to be great and contend for the cup. If only they could convince guys like Drury, Gomez, Redden…

    I don’t even think they calculate the NHL ratings. They just give them a 1.0 and move on..Personally, I don’t see why anybody would watch a regular season NHL, NBA, MLB or college basketball game unless it was your favorite team playing. That is why you always see the Lakers, Rangers and Yankees…they have the most fans in absolute terms by far

    Maybe if they stopped showing the Rangers over and over …

    That’s NBC should know its time for a change… even the comments on the low ratings are becoming dull.

    I’m a Bruins fan and even I wouldn’t watch it. Why is it All Rangers, All the Time? Why couldn’t I see the Caps-Bruins from the weekend before?
