Ratings: Hell's Kitchen and MasterChef Warm Up, Stanley Cup Finale Slips

Stanley Cup Finals 2012NBC’s coverage of the sixth and deciding game of the NHL’s Stanley Cup finals averaged 4.15 million total viewers and a 1.6 demo rating, based on the fast overnights.

That marks a sharp increase versus Saturday’s Game 5, sure, but versus last year’s Bruins/Canucks series it’s a 20 percent drop from Game 6 and barely half of what the deciding Game 7 scored.

Among regular fare, both Fox’s Hell’s Kitchen (6.2 mil/2.7) and MasterChef (5.84 mil/2.6) were up 13 percent week-to-week, with the former netting the night’s best demo number.

The Bachelorette‘s trip to London drew Monday’s largest audience — 7.33 mil — and inched up a tenth in the demo to a 2.3.

Fun fact: More people (725,000) watched The CW’s Breaking Pointe repeat on Monday night than when the episode first aired last Thursday (630K).

    I am interested to see the cable ratings. I really want “Bunheads” to have done well. It was such a great first episode.

    Had it with HK. Same old drama, too much swearing and enough with the smoking on camera. The whole show is a redux of every other show. I like to learn things and I learn nothing on HK. Really like MC though. Beautiful dishes.
