BREAKING: NBC Draws Huge 4.1 Overnight for Game 2

The NHL On NBC coverage of Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final drew a 4.1/7 overnight rating on Monday night, up 15% from last year’s Sunday night broadcast between Detroit and Pittsburgh, which drew a 3.5/6.

More from Marc Berman of Mediaweek:

Over at NBC, game two of The Stanley Cup Finals (Philadelphia at Chicago) finished third overall in the metered markets, with an above-average 4.1/ 7 from 8-11 p.m. Take a look at the half-hour breakdown:

Stanley Cup Finals (NBC)
8:00 p.m.: 3.5/ 6 (#3)
8:30 p.m.: 4.0/ 7 (#2t)
9:00 p.m.: 3.8/ 6 (#3)
9:30 p.m.: 4.4/ 7 (#3)
10:00 p.m.: 3.9/ 6 (#2)
10:30 p.m.: 4.8/ 8 (#2)

The 4.1 rating is higher or as high than every NBC telecast of the 2009 Final, except for Game 7.  It ties with Game 6 of the 2009 series as NBC’s third highest-rated NHL telecast since regaining the rights to air the league’s games in 2004, behind Game 6 of the 2008 series and the aforementioned Game 7 of the 2009 series.  More to come.
