OTT-NYR (g7), Apr 26, CBC: 2.54 million
NJ-FLA (g7), Apr 26, TSN: 975, 000

NJ-PHI (g1), Apr 29, CBC: 1.204 million

TOR-KC, Apr 23, SN: 580, 000
TOR-BAL, Apr 24, SN: 681, 000
TOR-BAL, Apr 25, SN: 465, 000

SEA-TOR, Apr 29, SN: 629, 000

So, TSN beat CBC even though they have last choice of which series to broadcast in the second round. Of course both of CBC’s games were in the afternoon, while TSN’s were in the evening. Game 2 of Capitals-Rangers improved to 1.3 million on Monday night. Overall, I don’t think any of the series are worth too much more than the others. Of course CBC prefers 7/7:30 ET starts because it allows them to show The National at its usual time in Ontario.

One thought on “Canadian Sports Ratings Update: May 2, 2012

  1. Don’t forget the asterisk on the CBC ratings for game 1 of the second round. The numbers were also lower because NBC was televising the game.
