Penguins Bring Another Big Audience to VERSUS

The Penguins continue to be the NHL’s undisputed top draw in the United States.

The VERSUS telecast of the Penguins Monday, January 10th game against the Boston Bruins scored 523,000 viewers, the network’s third highest number of the season so far, and well more than double the audience for VERSUS on Monday nights so far this season (approx. 205,000 viewers over 11 games).

The top three most-watched VERSUS games this season have featured the Penguins. The prior game showing Pittsburgh to a national audience set an all-time VERSUS record for a regular season game, with 750,000 tuning into Penguins/Flyers on December 14th. The same match-up drew 730,000 viewers on opening night, October 7th. The Penguins show up another seven times on VERSUS the rest of the season, so expect a lot more perky nights like this, with the needle crawling upwards.
