Wednesday Final Nationals: Predators-Penguins on NBCSN Earn Second-Most Watched NHL Stanley Cup Final Game 2 on Cable in 15 Years

CBS, Fox and NBCSN shared Wednesday night’s top honors. CBS won among total viewers (4.73 million).
Coverage of Game 2 of the “2017 NHL Stanley Cup Final” between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Nashville Predators put NBCSN on top among adults 18-49 (approx. 1.2 rating) and adults 18-34 (approx. 1.0 rating), as well as a virtual tie with Fox for the lead in adults 25-54 (approx. 1.4 rating).
Pittsburgh Penguins’ 4-1 victory over the Nashville Predators averaged a Total Audience Delivery (TAD) of 3.278 million viewers, up 27 percent vs. last year’s Game 2 between the Penguins and San Jose Sharks (2.579 million), according to The Nielsen Company.
Despite neither Nashville (#29) nor Pittsburgh (#23) being a Top 20 TV market, the contest was the second-most watched Stanley Cup Final Game 2 on cable since 2002 (Carolina-Detroit, ESPN, 3.782 million), behind only Boston-Chicago in 2013 (3.964 million), which are the #9 and #3 TV markets.
Game 2 (8:09 p.m. – 11:13 p.m. ET) peaked with 3.8 million TV-only viewers during the 9:45-10 p.m. ET quarter-hour. The full contest registered a 1.84 household rating, and averaged 3.18 million TV-only viewers, up 28 percent and 27 percent, respectively, vs. Game 1 a year ago (1.44 household rating; 2.507 million viewers).
Locally, Pittsburgh delivered a 31.1 local rating, the best ever for a Penguins game in the market on NBCSN, surpassing all previous Stanley Cup Final games on the network. Nashville posted a 16.3 local rating, the market’s second-best ever for a Predators game on NBCSN, trailing only last month’s Game 6 vs. Anaheim in the Western Conference Final (16.5). NBCSN was the No. 1 network overall in both markets during the game.

The night’s top telecast among all key demos — the third season finale of “Empire” — gave Fox the Wednesday win among adults 18-34 (1.4/7). Although Fox also scored a 1.7 rating in adults 18-49, the network (6.7) was just 0.3 behind CBS (7.0) in adults 18-49 share.

With the 2016-17 traditional TV season in the books, CBS was the most-watched network in total viewers (9.7 million) — a feat they’ve accomplished for nine consecutive years and for 14 of the past 15 years. NBC became the first network in five years to win the season’s adults 18-49 (2.1 rating, 2.7 million) and adults 25-54 crowns without the benefit of a Super Bowl or an in-season Olympics.
