Obviously home games are more likely to be on TV, or cable etc... so they get higher ratings.
But if everything is held constant, the thousands of fans that might be at the home game, might watch from home. On the other hand people might watch home games because they feel like the even is more important because it is in their city, their friends are at the game etc...
What do the numbers say if you hold everything else constant. More viewers for home games or away games?
for teams like the Panthers that have 15 people watch the game on TV (for home games)it might have a noticeable effect if you looked close enough but most teams should have a negligible difference.
