Thursday Final Nationals: 7.3 Million North American Viewers for NHL Senators-Penguins Game 7

On the first night of the summer 2017 TV season, ESPN was Thursday’s top network among total viewers (5.1 million), adults 18-49 (approx. 1.9 rating), adults 18-34 (approx. 1.8 rating) and adults 25-54 (approx. 2.1 rating). The network aired the Cleveland Cavaliers’ win over the Boston Celtics in the deciding Game 5 of the “2017 NBA Eastern Conference Finals”.
Runner-up to ESPN on cable in all key demos was NBCSN with the Pittsburgh Penguins’ double-overtime win over the Ottawa Senators in Game 7 of the “2017 NHL Eastern Conference Finals”. The 4-hour telecast averaged a Total Audience Delivery (TAD) of 3.016 million viewers — 2.921 million on TV and 94,800 viewers on NBC Sports’ digital streaming platform, making it the most-watched NHL game ever on NBCSN to feature a Canadian team, surpassing Game 3 of the Vancouver Canucks-Boston Bruins Stanley Cup Final in 2011 (2.757 million). It was up 16 percent compared to last year’s Eastern Conference Final Game 7 between Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh (2.593 million on May 26, 2016); and the third-most watched conference final game ever on NBCSN, behind only Kings-Blackhawks Game 7 (6/1/14; 4.179 million) and Lightning-Rangers Game 7 (5/29/15; 3.329 million).
TV-only viewership peaked with nearly 4.2 million viewers in the 11:15-11:30 p.m. ET quarter-hour. The full game posted a 1.69 household rating and averaged 2.921 million TV-only viewers.
Locally, the game posted a 29.7 rating/47 share in Pittsburgh to rank as the highest-rated Penguins game ever on NBCSN in the Pittsburgh market.
An average of 4.29 million Canadians tuned in to Sportsnet and CBC – the biggest Canadian audience of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs to date. Overall, 11 million Canadians watched some part of the game last night, with a peak audience of 4.71 million viewers tuning in at 11:27 p.m. ET as the game entered double overtime.
Game 7 ranks as the most-watched Ottawa Senators post-season game in franchise history.
Across all 78 games on NBC/NBCSN/CNBC/USA to date, the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs have averaged a TAD of 1.129 million viewers, up 8 percent from last year through the same point in the playoffs (1.049 million; 83 games). The playoffs are averaging a 0.66 household rating and averaging 1.102 million TV-only viewers.
