Another Sharks Record for CSN

Thanks to Jon Swenson from Sharkspage for the help.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Comcast SportsNet California, the home of the
“Authentic Bay Area Sports,” delivered its highest San Jose Sharks
rating ever last Saturday (May 8) – a 6.57 household rating for its
exclusive live coverage of the Sharks’ Game 5 second-round clinching
victory over the Detroit Red Wings.  The previous high was Game 6 of the
2008 Western Conference Semifinals against the Dallas Stars, which
posted a 5.9 on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area (5/4/08).

Sharks-Red Wings Game 5 attracted approximately 164,250 households for
the entire game and scored a 9.14 peak rating from 9:15 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
(over 229,000 households).  Sharks Postgame Live registered its highest
rating ever with a 3.06 (over 77,000 households).

In addition, Comcast SportsNet California was the top-rated network in
the key advertising demographics of Adults 18-49 (4.42), Men 18-49
(6.21), Adults 25-54 (4.51), and Men 25-54 (6.41) during last Saturday’s
telecast.

CSNCalifornia.com’s coverage of the Sharks has also earned an increase
in viewers since the beginning of the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs.  Since
Game 1 (April 14) of the first-round series against the Colorado
Avalanche, the site’s Sharks section has posted an increase of 208% in
page views and an increase of 197% in unique visitors.
