The Game 2 broadcast of the Eastern Conference Final between the Lightning and Bruins scored 1,562,000 viewers on VERSUS Tuesday night.


Not bad numbers considering it was going up against the series finale of some shows.

Thank you for the updates, keep up the good work. Great to see that the numbers are holding up. I think that the drop off reflects the late start time for the Detroit/ Eastern time zone folks. Living in the Mountain time zone is a bonus.

The terrific Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final between Boston and Tampa Bay drew 1.68 million viewers, marking the best numbers of the series for VERSUS


Interesting to see what game 7 does tonight. Will a game 7 on a Friday Night help or hurt the ratings ?

http://puckthemedia....igh-for-versus/


VERSUS’ coverage of the 2011 Western Conference Final ultimately ended up averaging under a million viewers, but the network got a slight boost from the deciding Game 5.

The network’s broadcast of the classic, double overtime Canucks clincher drew 879,000 viewers. This ended up being VERSUS’ second most-watched broadcast of the series, behind only Game 1, which drew 1 million viewers and was the only game on VERSUS to air in an earlier timeslot than 9 p.m. ET

Erik Erlendsson covers the Tampa Bay Lightning for The Tampa Tribune just tweeted-

NBC announces TB-Bos Game 7 avg 2.55 million viewers,


Great numbers for a Friday night NHL Playoff game on VS.

I'm not fan of Comcast,but they have done a good job of cross promoting the NHL play off games. I have seen ads for the NHL play off games on other Comcast channels besides NBC and VS.

■First, viewership averaged 2.76 million viewers. That’s down from last year’s cable record of 3.6 million viewers for Philadelphia-Chicago which went into overtime. Again, we take into account one US market and Canadian markets are not measured by the US Nielsen ratings.


■Viewership peaked at 3.52 million viewers in the 9:30 — 10 p.m. ET half hour in the 2nd period.

■Versus says in the 8 — 11 p.m. time period, Versus ranked 3rd among all cable networks in primetime.


■In Boston, Versus saw a 23.37 rating, the highest local rating ever for Versus. And the rating was up 57% from the last time the Bruins were on Versus which was game 7 of this year’s Eastern Conference Final against Tampa Bay.


■And Versus was the top rated network on both cable and network TV in Boston and Providence.




VS got a huge increase in viewers for this game compared to SJ/VAN series ratings numbers.

But the NHL saw a slight decrease in ratings going from Games 1+2 on NBC to Game 3 on VS.

VS started the season with these ratings -

Thursday, October 7
12:00 Minnesota vs. Carolina – 80,000 (0.1)
7:00 Philadelphia vs. Pittsburgh – 730,000 (0.4)
10:00 Chicago vs. Colorado – 430,000 (0.3)

Friday, October 8
12:00 Carolina vs. Minnesota – 95,000 (0.1)
3:00 Columbus vs. San Jose – 120,000 (0.1)

Saturday, October 9
12:00 Phoenix vs. Boston – 116,000 (0.1)

And finished with Game 4 of the Finals-

Wednesday, June 8

7:30 p.m. Hockey Central – 219,000 viewers


8:00 p.m. Vancouver vs. Boston, Game 4 – 2,714,000 viewers

10:30 p.m. Hockey Central – 875,000 viewers




I think the new TV deal will and has help increase ratings for VS because of the Comcast mega deal for NBC .

Adding Hockey Central and cross promoting the NHL with all the Comcast channels seems to have boosted ratings.

I hope they decide next season that it isn't a ratings killer to have Canadian teams featured in VS and NBC games.
