Record ratings for game 6

Quote:
Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final, which the Kings won 6-1 over the New Jersey Devils to clinch their first championship, registered a 25 share and a 13.6 household rating on Channel 4 in Los Angeles the highest rating in the Los Angeles market for any broadcast network NHL playoff game on record (since 1976).

Great news, I was worried ratings would be low and people would take more shots at hockey. Maybe the local media will take note.

Don't bet on it. Only local sports guy I can remember caring about hockey was Stu Nahan, and Stu Nahan ain't walking through that door.

He's a radio guy, but Dave Joseph is our best friend in the LA media

thats a great number, everyone I talked to said they watched at least some, and the total number does not include all the sports bars and the thousands in them

25 share is monumental.. that means 25% of all the televisions turned on in LA were watching the Kings game.

I met so many people over the past few weeks who just started watching the Kings for the first time and they were so excited to talk about them with me. It's actually great that the Lakers and Clipper lost because it put more eyes on the Kings and I hope we get a lot of new life long fans because of it.

The most fans Kings will get out of this are kids that is when most fall in love with the sport. Which is great news for the future of the Kings.

Out of curiosity, does this mean the city of LA, or the LA metro area? If its just the city, thats still about a million TVs watching the game. I'm wondering how many people tuned into the game. Even one million seems astounding, and great for the Kings in the future.

The Designated Market Area of Los Angeles includes a total population of 17,755,629, stretches from Ventura County all the way down the Pacific Coast through Orange County and as far east as the Arizona and Nevada borders. It comprises an area of 27,500 square miles, making it the largest DMA geography in the US.

A subset of that 17+ million number have TV's (approx. 5,600,000). A 13.6 rating / 25 share = of the 5.6MM households that have TV's (turned on or off), 13.6% of those households were watching the game and 25% of households with TVs turned on were watching.

Also it's a notorious flaw in the ratings that they aren't really able to account for people watching in bars, dorms, barracks, etc.

Thanks for the clarification!
