NHL Overtime Ratings Have Gotten Progressively Better This Week

NHL Overtime has seen more viewers tune as each episode goes on the air in it’s debut this week.

Wednesday night’s show, which aired at 11:00 PM ET, scored 59,000 viewers, above previous timeslot occupant The Daily Line’s average of 53,000. This is more impressive considering the show aired an hour after an episode of Hockey Central (67,000 viewers) and 90 minutes after a Bruins/Rangers game that did not air in local markets (138,000 viewers) went off the air. The show grew from it’s direct lead-in, an episode of Whacked Out Sports (53,000 viewers).

The show’s episode on Tuesday scored 33,000 viewers in a 12:30 AM ET timeslot, airing two and a half hours after Hockey Central left the airwaves. The network’s game that night, Flyers/Canadiens, scored 279,000 viewers. So far, the show has averaged 41,000 viewers, but the growth is positive, and hopefully some big name guests will push the needle tonight, despite a lack of NHL action on VERSUS.

Colin Campbell Joins As Much of a Must-Watch Episode of NHL Overtime As You Can Get

According to VERSUS, NHL Senior Vice President will appear via phone with Bill Patrick, Billy Jaffe and Aaron Ward on tonight’s episode of NHL Overtime. The episode also features an interview with Islanders Point Blank editor Chris Botta.

The show airs tonight at 11:00 PM ET, so set your DVRs or give it a watch.

Chris Botta to Appear on NHL Overtime Tonight to Discuss, Uh, Things

VERSUS’ new nightly hockey show gives itself another chance to establish some credibility when it comes to controversial issues.

Islanders Point Blank writer Chris Botta will appear on NHL Overtime tonight as a guest in the wake of the Islanders ludicrously taking away his credentials. This despite the fact that no one has done a better job promoting the team and discussion about the team over the past few years.

The show will be hosted by Bill Patrick, with analysts Billy Jaffe and Aaron Ward. The show airs tonight at 11:00 PM ET. If you care about issues relating to blogging and the media, I’d say it’s a must watch.
