That's been widely reported. Bowling stood out as well as something that shouldn't touch the NHL in terms of viewership but apparently beat it out.
And for whoever asked about Gary Thorne, he's been calling the Orioles game on MASN (Mid Atlantic Sports Net) and Comcast Sports Net here in MD/DC. I've always been a huge fan of Gary, but I'll admit that he sounded a bit odd calling MLB games. He seems to have settled in though, and now I look forward to hearing him.
