In the USA’s second-biggest TV market, Game 6 drew 13.6 of local households—the most ever for NHL action in that market. Overall, Game 6 drew a 4.0 overnight—4% of households in the 56 urban markets measured for overnights—up 3% from last year’s Boston-Vancouver Cup Final Game 6.
Otherwise, this year’s Cup Final trailed last year. Ratings for the first two games, on NBC, were down 25% from last year, while the next two on NBC Sports Network were off 33%—and the overnight for Game 5 on NBC was off 19%.
Separately, NBC finished with a 4.8 national rating—4.8% of U.S. households—for its Belmont Stakes coverage. That’s up 12% from last year. NBC’s three-race Triple Crown average—7.5% of U.S. households—was the highest since 2008, when Big Brown was a Triple Crown contender heading into the Belmont.
