Sunday Final Nationals: Penguins-Predators on NBC Outputs Record-High Non-Original-Six NHL Stanley Cup Final

Sunday night’s Game 6 of the “2017 NHL Stanley Cup Final” on NBC, where the Pittsburgh Penguins officially became league champions against the Nashville Predators, averaged a Total Audience Delivery (TAD) of 7.086 million viewers, up 29 percent vs last year’s Game 6. It is only the seventh Stanley Cup Final game to exceed seven million average viewers, and the sixth on NBC. TV-only viewership delivered a 3.88 household rating and 6.985 million average viewers, up 26 percent and 29 percent, respectively, vs. 2016. TV-only viewership peaked in the 10:45-11 p.m. ET quarter hour with 9.406 million viewers as Pittsburgh broke a scoreless tie late in regulation.

Game 6 registered a 40.0 rating in Pittsburgh, to rank as the second-highest rated Penguins game ever in the Pittsburgh market on the networks of NBC, trailing only Game 7 of the 2009 Stanley Cup Final (42.2).

The game also delivered a 28.3 rating in Nashville to rank as the highest-rated Predators game ever in the market on the networks of NBC. All six Stanley Cup Final games were the highest-rated Preds games ever in the market.

The rest of the Top 10 Markets for Game 6 were: Knoxville (10.7), Buffalo (10.4), Minneapolis-St. Paul (8.3), Philadelphia (6.4), Denver (5.9), St. Louis (5.5), Detroit (5.4), and Memphis (5.4).

The 2017 Stanley Cup Final on NBC/NBCSN averaged 4.762 million viewers in TAD, making it the most-watched Final on record without an Original Six team (Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Montreal, N.Y. Rangers, and Toronto). Viewership was up 19 percent vs. the 2016 Stanley Cup Final, which featured the Penguins and the San Jose Sharks.

Across all 84 games on NBC/NBCSN/CNBC/USA Network, the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs averaged a TAD of 1.387 million viewers, up 11 percent vs. 2016, despite five Canadian teams in this year’s Playoffs vs. none in 2016. It is the ninth consecutive year that the Playoffs have averaged more than 1.2 million viewers.
