CBC Television Ratings

Friday’s Game 5 delivered a new ratings record for CBC’S Hockey Night in Canada, with an average audience of 6.1 million Canadians tuning in. That’s the most-watched NHL broadcast in CBC history* – edging out the 5.6 million that watched earlier in this same series.

The game, which saw Vancouver defeat Boston 1-0 to take a 3-2 series lead, reached a total of just over 14 million different Canadians, and peaked at 10:53 pm ET when 8.9 million viewers tuned in to see the dramatic ending.

Incredible. Despite having 1/10 of the population, more Canadians tuned in to watch Game 5 than Americans (4.65M):


This could help Quebec City and Hamilton get teams sooner than we think.
