Precisely. They put us on because we are a good ratings draw. We watch and we watch more than just the Sabres. What was the quote from a few years ago? Paraphrasing a TV exec from VS. - "Buffalo is a force of nature".

Also mentioned how we cream American Idol I believe.

Wish I could comment more...but it seems that every night I have off the Sabres do. And every night I close the Sabres play.
Here's the other article Another Hockeytown. Figures that it would be during the 06-07 season

On Versus, Buffalo has the highest ratings and the most viewers. “The Buffalo fans are a force of nature,” said Gavin Harvey, the president of Versus. “We crushed ‘American Idol’ up there.”
Been lurking since last year. Yeah I know everyone could google these but figured I'd provide the links...

It was more disappointing that they didn't score since I wanted to hear RJ's call in the arena after a goal... but there weren't any
