Stanley Cup

Ratings: Stanley Cup Slips With Game 5

NBC’s coverage of the Penguins’ 6-0 blanking of the Predators on Thursday night drew 4.4 million total viewers and a 1.5 demo rating, down 23 and 25 percent from the Stanley Cup finalists’ previous match-up and down 12 percent from last year’s Game 5.

ABC’s Celebrity Family Feud rerun drew Thursday’s largest audience (with 6.3 million viewers), while scoring a 1.5  rating — tying hockey for the nightly demo win.

Over on Fox, Beat Shazam (2.9 mil/1.0) and Love Connection (2.6 mil/0.8) each dipped another tenth in the demo.

    The Penguins are one win away to repeat as STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS. Last team to do it was the Detroit Red Wings (1997 and 1998).

    Beat Shazam is a winner for FOX even with the drop. Holding on to that one in summer time is good for FOX

    Are the ratings for sporting events an average over the game? Or just the highest point. I’d be curious to see the ratings first period vs. third.
