More VERSUS Playoff Viewership Numbers

From Anthony Crupi of Mediaweek:

Meanwhile, in other playoff news, Versus scored with the first five games of its NHL postseason coverage, as the Comcast-owned net averaged 543,000 total viewers, up 22 percent from last year (447,000).

Versus’ deliveries were the highest for a cable network since the first five games of the 2002 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Moreover, the net is seeing improvement among the key male demos, including men 25-54 (up 18 percent), men 18-49 (up 8 percent) and men 18-34 (up 6 percent).

Thus far, Versus’ biggest draw has been Game 2 of the Canadiens-Capitals series, which drew 731,000 viewers Saturday night. The game surpassed the previous high set by Game 7 of a Flyers-Caps set that drew 682,000 viewers on April 22, 2008.

    It’s weird that Saturday nite was the biggest draw…..looks like Versus picked the wrong series. What would the ratings have been if they did games 3 & 4 as well?????
