Hawks Ratings For Game 3 Up From Game 2

From Phil Rosenthal:

Versus’ telecast of Friday’s 3-2 overtime victory over San Jose in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals, which left the Chicago Blackhawks one victory away from their first trip to the Stanley Cup finals in 18 years, averaged an 11.52 household rating in the Chicago market.

That translates to approximately 403,000 Chicago-area homes tuned in between 7:15 p.m. and 10:15 p.m., and marks a new cable ratings high for the Hawks. It surpasses Versus’ 10.93 rating for Game 2 of the series with the Sharks and the 10.14 rating in Game 3 of their previous playoff series vs. Vancouver, which stands as the most-watched event in the history of Comcast SportsNet Chicago.
