  1. From NBC

    NBC Ratings: NHL Penguins’ Cup-Clinching Wins Soars +28% Above the Year-Ago Game, Wins Sunday Night



    Sunday Primetime Ratings:

    · Note that the fast-affiliate ratings that came in at 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT are not time zone-adjusted and are subject to revision for live sporting events. As those preliminary numbers stand, NBC ranks #1 among the Big 4 networks for the night in adults 18-49, adults 25-54, adults 18-34, women 18-49, women 18-34 and every key adult-male demographic.

    · In metered-market results, which are time zone-adjusted, last night’s NBC Sports 8:15-11:15 p.m. ET coverage of Stanley Cup Final hockey, featuring the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Nashville Predators, delivered 4.76 rating, jumping +28% versus the year-ago clinching Game 6 (4.76 vs. 3.72 for Penguins-Sharks on Sunday, June 12, 2016).

    · It’s NBC’s fourth-best Stanley Cup Final Game 6 on record, and the network’s #1 Game 6 on record that did not feature the Chicago Blackhawks.

    · Pittsburgh’s 40.0 metered-market rating stands as the second highest overnight delivery ever for NBC coverage of a Penguins game in the Pittsburgh market, behind only 2009’s Stanley Cup Final Game 7 versus the Detroit Red Wings (42.2).

    · With a 28.3 metered market rating in Nashville, this was the highest-rated Predators game ever on the networks of NBC in the Nashville market, topping Game 4 of the this year’s Stanley Cup Final on NBC (28.0).

    Note that “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” aired before NHL Hockey in the Eastern U.S. and after the game in the West, and currently available fast-affiliate ratings do not reflect those time-zone variations and are subject to significant adjustment.

    NOTE: All ratings are “live plus same day” from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.

  2. From ABC

    ABC’s Sunday Game Shows Lead as the Night’s Top 3 Series in Adults 18-49

    ABC Sunday Prime (7-11pm – 5.7 million and 1.2/5 in AD18-49) With a repeat Funniest Home Videos leading into its Sunday game show premieres against NBC’s deciding game of the 2017 Stanley Cup Finals, ABC was the dominant non-sports network on Sunday by 33% over CBS with the 71st Annual Tony Awards broadcast in Adults 18-49 (1.2/5 vs. 0.9/4).

    · ABC’s premieres of Celebrity Family Feud (1.5/6), Steve Harvey’s Funderdome (1.4/5) and $100,000 Pyramid (1.2/5) ranked as Sunday’s Top 3 series in Adults 18-49.

    Celebrity Family Feud (8-9pm – 6.9 million and 1.5/6 in AD18-49): Launching over its repeat Funniest Home Videos lead-in at 8pm (+68%/+88%) against NBC’s NHL championship, ABC’s third season premiere of Celebrity Family Feud was the most watched TV show in the hour (6.9 million) and took the series lead with Adults 18-49 (1.5/6).

    · The ABC game show grew from its most recent telecast by 15% in Adults 18-49 (1.3/4 on 9/11/16) topping its final 4 airings of last season.

    Steve Harvey’s Funderdome (9-10pm – 6.1 million and 1.4/5 in AD18-49): Retaining an impressive 93% of its lead-in coming out of CFF at 9pm, ABC’s debut of Steve Harvey’s Funderdome ranked as the #1 series in its slot and more than tripled Fox’s premiere of American Grit in the hour with Adults 18-49 (+250% – 1.4/5 vs. 0.4/2).

    $100,000 Pyramid (10-11pm – 5.5 million and 1.2/5 in AD18-49): At 10pm, ABC’s $100,000 Pyramid beat the final hour of CBS’ Tony Awards by 50% among Adults 18-49 (1.2/5 vs. 0.8/3).

    · ABC’s $100,000 Pyramid grew 20% over its most recent airing with Adults 18-49 (1.0/3 on 9/12/16) and bested its final 4 telecasts of last season.

  3. From CBS


    · At 7:00 PM, a rebroadcast of 60 MINUTES was first in viewers (7.66m) and averaged 0.7 in A18-49 and 1.1 in A25-54.

    · From 8:00-11:00 PM, THE TONY AWARDS averaged 6.01m, 0.9 in A18-49 and 1.2 in A25-54.

    · For the night, CBS was first in viewers (6.43m).

  4. Douglas this was a great Stanley Cup Finals series and the ratings proved it as that’s a massive uptick 28% from last year but I’m not surprised since the Preds were a much more compelling story and sexier team to watch since they had a star in P.K. Subban and the whole country culture behind it with various country stars like Carrie Underwood, Faith Hill, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, and Vince Gill appearing on the telecast. To me the Preds will end up being the first true successful southern team to reach a national reach for the league. The league needed a popular team around the south I’m rooting for the Preds to continue to be a Stanley Cup contender and maybe even make it back. I would love to see a Chicago vs. Nashville Western Conference Final next year.

    I think once the league can get more non-traditional hockey regions into the sport nationally then the league will be even stronger but this year proved that the NHL is in good shape without having two high market teams like a New York, Chicago, Detroit or Boston in the final but the Pens have always been a top 5 draw for the league and obviously Sidney Crosby makes the difference which is why the Sharks series did good last year too but this year’s miles better.

  5. Also I had a question SoB about Kevin Can Wait, do you think CBS will ultimately just rename it King of Queens? It’s really no longer Kevin Can Wait to me without Erinn Hayes there.

    • I just mentioned that in my recent podcast found on the front page of this site! But considering they’re playing different characters, they probably won’t.

      Nonetheless, I wouldn’t put it past them to invite Jerry Stiller onto the show too.

      • Yeah that’s why I asked because I listened into it yesterday and you did a fine job by the way explaining everything in there also about This Is Us moving back to Tuesdays as well.

        I agree that they probably won’t fully go King of Queens but they might mirror it very closely without changing the names. I think they have to get rid of the kids too and just have Kevin live with Leah’s character and yeah I wouldn’t be surprised if Jerry Stiller is invited back for the show either full-time or as a recurring star.
