Wednesday Final Nationals: Both NHL Stanley Cup Playoff Second Round Game 7s Improve on Year-Ago Levels

CBS won Wednesday night among total viewers (7.09 million). “Empire” saw enough improvement in its ratings from recent weeks to help give Fox leadership among adults 18-49 (1.5 rating/6 share) and adults 25-54 (1.8/6).

TNT led adults 18-34 (approx. 1.2 rating) with coverage of the “2017 NBA Playoffs”: Washington Wizards at Boston Celtics Game 5 (3.76 million viewers).

Elsewhere on cable, it was a doubleheader of Conference Semifinal Game 7s in the “2017 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs” on NBCSN and both of them showed increases from St. Louis at Dallas on May 11, 2016 (1.33 million viewers), the Game 7 on the year-ago Wednesday night. The Pittsburgh Penguins’ victory over the Washington Capitals (2.48 million viewers) drew the largest cable audience for an NHL game telecast this season to-date. The Anaheim Ducks’ win over the Edmonton Oilers (1.36 million viewers) also outdrew last year’s St. Louis-Dallas Game 7.
