NHL Playoff Ratings: April 11, 2012

Here are the Canadian ratings for night one of the playoffs. CBC won the night with an average of over 2 million watching the Kings upset the Canucks. However, TSN won the head-to-head battle of early games. An average of 1.5 million tuned into an overtime thriller between the Penguins and Flyers on TSN. 334, 000 more watched on RDS. The Red Wings @ Predators game on CBC drew an average audience of 990, 000 on CBC.

The total average audience for the broadcasts on CBC and TSN was about 1.2 million. TSN claims over 7 million watched some of Flyers @ Penguins on its networks, while over 6 million watched some of CBC’s broadcast.

Here are the night one ratings for the 2012 NHL playoffs.

7:30pm, PHI-PIT (g1), TSN: 1.5 million (334, 000 more on RDS)
8:00pm, DET-NSH (g1), CBC: 990, 000
10:30pm, LA-VAN (g1), CBC: 2 million + (exact number not released).

I have also started the 2012 NHL playoffs ratings database, which will include ratings for CBC and TSN. See it here and bookmark it; I will update it daily throughout the playoffs.
