    If its up vs Pit/Phi series last year that is pretty good. I have to believe a Pit/Bos series would have been huge for Versus. Oh well……

    Is this good when compared to other years?

  3. stevelepore says:

    @Joel: According to the NHL’s Michael DiLorenzo, this is up 77% from Game 1 of DET/DAL last year.

    Its good….

    but it would be 1.6 to 1.8 if Boston made it

    It says on http://sportsmediawatch.blogspot.com/search/label/Ratings that the game got a 1.45 ratings and is 77% higher than last year’s game.

    So which rating is correct? 1.45 or 1.19?

  6. stevelepore says:

    @Colton: 1.45 is the cable rating, 1.19 is the national rating. As you might note from reading the story, we were a source for that report.

  7. Chris says:

    Oh…so thats about 1.6 million viewers…probably 1.75 or so

    ooooooooh. Nevermind then.
