After all, the Sabres’ meaningless loss to the Philadelphia Flyers’ Sunday afternoon averaged a 16.4 rating and 36 share on Channel 2, the local NBC affiliate. To put that in perspective, the Easter Sunday game had higher local ratings than every network series in prime time Sunday night and almost every program all week.
ABC’s declining “Desperate Housewives,” which may have suffered because it was competing with the final season premiere of HBO’s “The Sopranos,” was in second place Sunday with 14.5 rating on Channel 7. “Without a Trace,” the popular CBS series was third, with a 12.5.
The Sabres’ rating was almost as high as the 16.9 rating for last Tuesday’s edition of “American Idol” on WUTV. “Idol” may be losing audience now because it is so obvious that anything but a Melinda Doolittle victory would be a travesty.
