Game 2 of Kings/Coyotes Down From 2011
May 16, 2012 4 Comments
The Kings easy victory over the Coyotes proved toxic to television viewers on Tuesday.
Game 2 of the Western Conference Final, which featured Los Angeles whitewashing Phoenix to a 2-0 series lead, drew just 835,000 viewers, down 1% from Game 2 of the 2011 Western Conference Final, with Sharks/Canucks drawing 847,000 viewers. It was down a whopping 32% from Game 1, which drew 1.10 million viewers.
Local numbers are unavailable at the moment, but it’s safe to assume that not enough casual fans in LA (the Clippers were playing at the same time) were able to pick up the slack from the likely dwindling number of folks still tuning in from Phoenix.
