Local Numbers For Game 7’s

Again, Neil Best is your man for these numbers:

Rangers-Capitals (MSG): 3.02 rating
Hurricanes-Devils (MSG Plus): 1.65 rating

For the night, the Yankees beat everything (barely), while the Rangers bested the Met game that night, and the Devils were in last place.  But hockey made a dent, which makes both teams crapping the bed all the worse.

We’ll get to discussing the Devs Thursday, if you’re into trainwrecks.

    and if North Jersey was its own TV market, that’s probably a 3.5 for the Devils telecast.

    The Devils ratings are truly dismal…Thank god they are gone. I’d rather see teams that do huge ratings #s advance. Boston and Pittsburgh are great for hockey

    You do realize the Devils drawing a 1.6 in New York is better than, say, getting an 8-10 rating in most markets?

    A regular season Devils games does about a .1……..I don’t care what the market is…that’s dismal

    Kevin, you need to get your facts straight. look back at this post – https://puckthemedia.wordpress.com/2009/04/21/your-final-nhl-local-ratings-for-the-2008-09-season/

    The Devils got a 0.4, and the Islanders got a 0.1 rating during the season. And a 0.4 competing for fans and viewership with the Rangers is probably more like 1.2 in the isolated small market of Northern NJ. With that, a 0.4 for the season and a 1.65 for game 7 of the first round is quite a jump, even considering it was up against the Rangers game that night.
