Double OT Game 2 of Preds/Canucks Doesn’t Improve Much
May 4, 2011 7 Comments
Game 2 of the Predators/Canucks Conference Semi-final series didn’t do much to move the needle for VERSUS, according to Son of the Bronx.
The classic, double overtime Game 2, which featured a stunning performance by Pekka Rinne and a big win for Nashville, drew just 582,000 viewers for the network and an 0.4 rating. This was up 17% in viewers from the 484,000 from Game 1, but still does not crack the Top 10 games VERSUS has broadcast in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The game aired exclusively in the Nashville market on VERSUS and not on a regional sports network.
It will be interesting to see what Game 3 does with a Tampa Bay/Washington lead-in, but without the Nashville market. Stay tuned, I should have more ratings figures throughout the day.
