Canadian Sports Ratings Update: May 9, 2012

Here are the much-awaited (low) NHL second round ratings.

Thanks to TV Feeds My Family for posting these.

MLB

IIHF Worlds
CAN-USA, May 5, TSN: 399, 000

As you can see, the hockey numbers are well below the first round ratings, despite less competition. CBC certainly made the right choice in picking the two Eastern-based series though.

The Capitals-Rangers series is averaging 1.2 million viewers through five games. Devils-Flyers averaged 1.4 million through game 4. Ratings for game 5 aren’t available yet.

Kings-Blues averaged 759, 000 on TSN. Overall ratings for the Coyotes-Predators series are also not available at this time.

  1. The Sat. morning-afternoon* and Sunday afternoon* games were also on NBC*. Having them that early helped decrease the amount of viewers.
