Caps Set New Ratings Milestone

Via Dan Steinberg:

When this Caps season ends, there will be another blog post about another year of record ratings. In the meantime, we can take the milestones as they come.

So here’s another one. Two seasons ago, the Caps’ local broadcasts on Comcast SportsNet didn’t hit the 2.0 ratings mark until the playoffs. Last season, the Caps hit at least 2.0 14 times in their 76 CSN broadcasts.

Well, Friday’s game against the Hurricanes averaged a 2.18 on CSN in the D.C. market, good for about 51,000 homes., according to Nielsen data. That was the 15th time the Caps have hit at least 2.0 this season, which is obviously something that’s never happened before. And they needed just 59 broadcasts to get there.
