VERSUS Draws 1.1 Million For Pens-Caps Game 7
May 15, 2009 1 Comment
According to SportsBusinessDaily via Sports Media Watch:
The Penguins’ blowout win over the Capitals drew 1.1 million viewers on Versus Wednesday night, finishing behind Games 1, 2 and 3 in viewership. Keep in mind that the first three games of the series were exclusive to NBC (Game 1) and Versus (Games 2 and 3), as opposed to Game 7, which was non-exclusive.
While the 1.1 million viewers is far from impressive — especially for a Game 7 involving the NHL’s two biggest stars — Versus did have the consolation of finishing as the highest rated network among men 18-34 in its 7-9:30 PM timeslot.
I think it’s good news considering the game wasn’t exclusive in the local markets.
