Hockey Night In Ottawa

from William Houston of the Globe and Mail,

Last Saturday, with the Leafs on the West Coast playing the San Jose Sharks at 10 p.m. EST, Hockey Night aired the Detroit Red Wings-Senators game, the battle of the NHL’s top two teams, nationwide at 7 p.m. The telecast did pretty well, 909,000 viewers, not far off the 1.181 million average for the Leafs’ telecasts.

The Wings-Senators were up against two NFL playoff games on CTV, which were watched by 1.05 million (Seattle Seahawks-Green Bay Packers) and 924,000 (Jacksonville Jaguars-New England Patriots).

Without the competition from football, Wings-Senators would have pulled in an audience probably larger than the Leafs’ average on Hockey Night.
