Very useful post.
Sorry, since I got the info from well known websites, I assumed somebody had already posted about it here.

Seeing as they're the most successful US franchise, it is

But an annual fireworks show will outdraw a playoff game not featuring the hometown team any day unless you're the MLB, NBA or NFL.

To re-word this:

But an annual fireworks show will not outdraw a major leagues playoff game featuring the hometown team any day unless you're the NHL.



Edit: which as you said just proves that it's a "Hockey Town" based on the franchise success rather than its popularity in the city.

Uhh, the majority of northern NHL markets do local ratings nearly as good, if not better than the NBA.

So that would mean the NHL is the most popular of the 4 major team sports.

It's known as a "hockey town" based on the fact that NHL hockey is wildly popular there.

The headline of the link is 'Stanley Cup Coverage Dominates Night', and the information contained shows that the NHL doubled the next closest show on network TV in the 18-49 demo and tripled the 18-49 rating of the MLB game(s) on FOX. It was also, by far, the most watched show in total viewers. Nothing else was even close.

Your takeaway from that info was that the ratings were 'not particularly good'?

I don't there is a Red Wings fan that would disagree with you. It was immediately what I thought it meant when it was first unveiled.

More so, it was just a marketing slogan that a bunch of ********** goobers took way too seriously to this day.

BTW This is all because of the lockout anyhow. I don't believe the fireworks have ever coincided with the Finals before.

Likely because we were swept in '95

Dammit. You know what I mean.

And yet it's less popular than ever other major sports; therefore, calling the town "hockey town" based on the sport's popularity is highly misleading.

Over 200,000 households watching in the NY market for Game 5. That's why the area has three teams.

Steve Lepore‏@stevelepore36m
Los Angeles was the only other U.S. market outside Boston/Chicago besides NY to produce more than 100K households (154K) for Game 5.
hey look, west palm beach a top-10 market. half of the panthers season ticket holders come from there....but move them anyway!

The Wings and Piston seem to go back and forth with ratings victories based on some of the info I've seen. I'll leave that to the Detroit experts.

I can say with certainty that the Pistons were almost dead last in attendance in the entire NBA, compared to 100% sell-outs for hockey.

The Pistons higher ratings things was weird, I think it was the lingering effects of the lockout and Yzerman's retirement... the 2008 Cup win seemed to shake it back to normal. The Pistons are undeniably fourth in this market, but when they're on game people get really invested. It's almost like when a football school's basketball team goes on a run and suddenly everyone acts like they're experts on the sport.

Game 6 will do a 5.0 with around 8 million.

A game 7 tough to say.

6.0 with 10 million probably.

an OT game say 4-3 game 7 10 minutes into OT will do 11 million. Peak at 13 mil.

Boston delivered a 24.4. Chicago received a 22.1.

I would love to know what WFXT (Fox25) had going head to head with Bruins on Sat in Boston with Tigers/Red Sox. It appears it dented the Bruins a little.

NBC has to be happy overall with the numbers and when all is said and done NBC/Universal most likely makes a better profit with the NHL than ESPN/ABC because of rights fees.

ESPN/ABC elected to walk away after 2004 as Calgary/Tampa did not produce good numbers. Ottawa/Anaheim did even worse for NBC in 2007.

The numbers we are seeing for BOS-CHI will be a benchmark for years.

Just a 3.9, which is down from a 6.7 for Friday's game on NESN.

You have to realize also many northern states get CBC, and would most likely watch that then their local NBC stations. That is why they might get bumped down.

I know I;m watching on CBC HD 619 on comcast

The only major markets with that are really Seattle, Detroit, and Buffalo. It doesn't have as big an effect as people imagine.

Well the example used was Detroit not having in on their main NBC affiliate, same goes for Seattle.

Stanley Cup Final Update (via @stevelepore, @billbriouxTV, @NBCSportsPR)

Game 1: 2.46 M on CBC + 6.358M on NBC = 8.818M viewers
Game 2: 2.724M on CBC + 3.964M on NBCSN = 6.688M viewers
Game 3: 2.536M on CBC + 4.001M on NBCSN = 6.537M viewers
Game 4: 2.653M on CBC + 6.459M on NBC = 9.112M viewers

Does not include American viewers of CBC or Canadian viewers of NBC.

NBC had an overnight rating of 4.0 for game 5. Likely means between 4.5 and 5.5 million viewers.

Similar to round 3 on CBC which averaged 2.24M over 5 games (games 2,3,4 in east, and games 4,5 in west).
