Watching Penguins/Flyers

from Puck The Media,

So this is an interesting one.  According to SportsBusinessDaily (reg. required), NBC’s coverage of the Stanley Cup Playoffs had a mixed weekend.  While the network’s Saturday coverage of Rangers/Capitals Game 2 drew a mere 1.0/3, flat with last year’s comparable Predators-Red Wings game, Sunday’s telecast of the Penguins-Flyers Game 3, drew a huge (for hockey) 1.7/4, NBC’s highest hockey ratings since the Winter Classic on New Year’s Day, and likely tied for the highest non-Finals/Winter Classic rating on NBC in the network’s history.

continue with some local numbers…

The Word On Roger Millions

from Tim Wharnsby of the Globe and Mail,

Reporter Roger Millions has been taken off the air for a few days after Rogers Sportsnet unintentionally aired an embarrassing outtake, according to network sources.

The Calgary-based correspondent was taping a pregame report prior to the NHL playoff series opener between the Calgary Flames and Chicago Blackhawks last Thursday, when he uttered an obscenity after he messed up his presentation.

Somehow the outtake was not only filed back to network headquarters in Toronto, but was shown on Sportsnet’s Hockey Central at approximately 6:20 p.m. EDT. The faux pas sent shock waves through the all-sports network yesterday, prompting an internal memo from executive producer Mike English.

Ducks Fans Want Their HD

via Al Balderas of Ducks Blog,

A spokesperson for Fox Sports said that her office has been receiving a lot of emails from those of you who want their HDTV. Let’s just hope none of you are holding your breath.

While Fox Sports would like to bring you the games in the HD format, the spokesperson explained that “this economic climate has forced us to re-evaluate our plans. HD has been the most affected in this environment.”

The people at Fox apologize and hope you’ll continue to tune in.

Word Error

from Greg Wyshynski of Puck Daddy,

The awesomely named Roger Millions was reporting from Chicago last night for Sportsnet, setting the scene between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Calgary Flames before Game One. After mispronouncing the name of Flames defenseman Cory Sarich (it’s SAHR-ihch), Millions got a little self-critical of his performance—and dropped a tremendous profanity live on the air.

Serious, no-joke NSFW adult language warning on the YouTube clip.

Read and watch on.  At times, we all make mistakes and I am sure Roger would like to take that moment back.

Fans Decide What Is Worth Reading

from Tom Benjamin’s NHL Blog, .

..Anyway, I thought it was important to weigh in on whether HNiC should acknowledge the blogosphere in this way. Obviously, I think the answer is yes, but the show deserves a more thoughtful response than I could give in a few seconds.

Scott Morrison is right about the blogger who shall not be named, but he is wrong if he thinks ignoring the new hockey media is the answer to the accountability issue. Blogs are not going away simply because the mainstream media operates as if they don’t exist.

The accountability argument is more or less over. It really doesn’t matter whether it is a genuine problem or not because fans clearly don’t care about it. They know the internet. Most of them think they are capable of separating the wheat from the chaff on the web. They didn’t just fall off a turnip truck. They decide what’s worth reading.
