After relatively solid numbers throughout the season, the NHL plumbed
the depths on NBC last Sunday.

NBC drew a mere 0.5 final rating for Rangers/Bruins last Sunday, down
38% from Flyers/Penguins last year (0.8).

The 0.5 rating is tied as the lowest for any NHL telecast on NBC since
the network resumed airing games in '06.

Sunday's game was the lowest rated sporting event on broadcast
television last weekend.

See previous question and answer. Any further questions ?

Don't kid yourself. If Bettman didn't know what he was doing he
wouldn't be Commissioner.

Maybe the games were up against college hoops ? high school
volleyball ? NLL lacrosse ?

I think even some people in Canada are losing interest in the NHL if I
am a barometer of things. So, Bettman, has succeeded in frustrating
loyal fans of the game, and chasing bad markets for zero ratings.

I thought the Olympics were gonna be the aha moment ? LOL

It's hopeless.
