Pens/Caps Game 1 Ratings Up 40% from Last Year
May 4, 2009 2 Comments
According to NBC Sports spokesman Brian Walker, NBC’s telecast of Pittsburgh/Washington’s Game 1 Eastern Conference Semi-final drew a 1.4/4 overnight rating on NBC. These numbers are up 40% from last year’s comparable telecast (a 1.0/4 for Game 2 of Colorado/Detroit). Obviously, the hype behind the series combined with those getting ready for the Kentucky Derby (The highest-rated race in 17 years) helped out.
We will know the Anaheim/Detroit ratings tomorrow. But I would not be shocked if Ducks/Red Wings did an even better rating.
