Also the scrimmage viewers report was for viewers in the "region", whatever that means. This is only for the Pittsburgh media market.

Gotta love Pitt and Buffalo..always killing it in local ratings. I predicted earlier in this thread that the strong markets would see an increase in ratings.

What about ratings for the teams that don't do so well usually in ratings?

Well, NBC certainly pays attention when they scheduled Pitt, Philly and Buffalo for their opening weekend national games. Those cities never let you down for ratings.

Leafs-Habs game smashes record!

From the Globe and Mail


Saturday night’s eastern time zone prime-time broadcast of Hockey Night in Canada, featuring a matchup between the division rivals Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs, pulled in an astonishing 3,317,000 viewers. That was up16 per cent from the previous record of 2,875,000 (set April 7, 2007, when the Leafs knocked off the Canadiens to stay in the hunt for a playoff spot) and a 44 per cent rise from the same weekend in January, 2012.

Even the CBC’s half-hour pre-game broadcast attracted 2,106,000 viewers.

10% of the population, hockey mad. If the U S could get 38 million to tune into a game it would surpass an NFL game, No?

Wonder how high they could go if either team was any good, let alone if both were.

I'm assuming that was across the entire area that Root Sports Pittsburgh telecasts in.


(map of the coverage when it was FSN Pittsburgh, but I don't think it has changed much, if at all, since the switch)

A 6.7 in Pittsburgh definitely isn't 210,000+ television sets. That ~225k number is a 19.4.

I believe a Sunday Night NFL game draws around 20 million if it's a good game, could be wrong. I'm sure the number would be a lot higher though if the NFL had a lockout and football was delayed, I bet the opening day ratings would be ridiculous.

For the Superbowl, 111.3 million Americans tuned in to watch it last year.

I believe the ratings go up every year.

And those canadian numbers are with other games going on too. Lots of people have centre ice, or just watch a portion of a game.

It goes without saying that the NHL is the NFL of Canada, basically.

To be fair, to say that everyone watching a Leafs-Habs game on HNIC is hockey-mad is a stretch. Plenty of casuals tuned in, which is why you don't normally see such high numbers.

The “Prime West” game on CBC, which surely struggled to keep the interest of Canucks fans, 1.471 million viewers. That is the highest rated late game since Hockey Day in Canada last season.
Very good numbers especially considering it was against a smaller American team and was a blowout with the Canucks losing 7-3.

Blues set FSMW ratings record for regular season game in last nights 4-3 win over Nashville.

Quote:
The Jan. 21 game against Nashville was the highest-rated regular season Blues telecast ever on FOX Sports Midwest. The Blues' 4-3 shootout win at Nashville generated a 7.4 household rating in the St. Louis DMA, according to Nielsen Media Research.

That easily tops the previous regular season high of 6.3 set March 13, 2012 at Chicago.

Monday's telecast peaked at a 9.1 rating (113,000 households) during the shootout. The Blues Live postgame show followed with an impressive 4.7 rating.

Saturday's season opener vs. Detroit was the highest-rated Blues season or home opener on FOX Sports Midwest. It averaged a 6.0 household rating, making it the highest-rated program in prime time in St. Louis on Saturday.

Blues are now watched by the 5th or 6th generation of kids.

Perfect time to solidify the franchise into a higher level of support

Lightning did a 2.8 on Sun Sports on opening night. Apparently peaked at 3.4. It was in a tweet from the lightning beat writer earlier today.

Anyone know the ratings from Flyers-Devils last night? I presume Philly ratings were solid period, and NYC Market ratings were good in the context that only about a quarter of the market is the target market of the team in question (i.e. compared to past Devils ratings).
