Stanley Cup Finals Ratings

Ratings: Stanley Cup Game 4 Surges vs. 2016, Gotham Dips With Finale

NBC’s Stanley Cup Finals coverage on Monday night drew 5.7 million total viewers and a 2.0 demo rating (per finals), surging 36 and 33 percent versus last year’s Game 4 (between the Penguins and Sharks).

The hockey match/game/contest thus led the night in the demo, besting ABC’s The Bachelorette.

Over on Fox, Gotham did 3.2 mil/1.0 and then 3 mil/0.9, dipping tenth in the demo with its finale. Readers gave the eventful closer an average grade of “B+.”

ABC’s aforementioned Bachelorette (6 mil/1.7) rose two tenths up week-to-week, while Still Star-Crossed (1.97 mil/0.5) was flat versus its premiere.

The CW’s Whose Line (1.08 mil/0.3) ticked up.

    Isn’t looking good for Gotham come fall on Thursdays

      Maybe not but consider Bones on FOX the last two years ran into June and July and didn’t stay as steady as Gotham did. I realize it only went a week into June but it stayed steady and dropped a bit but not huge. I think Gotham will be ok for FOX on Thursdays next season not great but ok

    Thought Gotham was great this season! Very creative & entertaining! More people should be watching. Glad it’s coming back next season.

  3. Donna Salvi says:

    So glad Gotham has been renewed

  4. Kevin Tran says:

    Hope the Penguins repeat (fingers crossed)

  5. Joey Padron says:

    Glad Gotham went up in the ratings for the season finale. Hope they will do well on Thursday nights for season 4 this fall.

    Watched still star crossed. It’s interesting. From the reviews it’s better than expected. Curious to see where it goes

  7. kmw says:

    Nice that hockey won the night. Sad that Gotham couldn’t rise but all things considered it being June and all staying as even as it has is pretty good

  8. Grey's Fan says:

    Go hockey!

  9. Tom says:

    Sad that the Predators won game 4, now that means they’ll have to watch Pittsburgh win the cup in Nashville in game 6
