Ratings: NBC Scores Demo Victory With Stanley Cup's Game 1


By Tony Maglio

Game 1 of the NHL Stanley Cup Final was a victory for the Los Angeles Kings, and for NBC.

The overtime game scored the highest demo rating of the night, despite being down from last year's matchup. Due to the nature of live sports, NBC's numbers are approximate.

CBS was tops in viewers with an all-rerun lineup.

NBC was first in ratings with a 1.7 rating/6 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and fourth in viewers with an average of 4.5 million, according to preliminary numbers. Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals was the only broadcast on the network's schedule.

Fox was second in ratings with a 1.5/5 and in viewers with 5 million. "So You Think You Can Dance" was the only show on the schedule.

ABC was third in ratings with a 1.2/4 and in viewers with 4.8 million. Following reruns, "Motive" at 10 p.m. had a 1.0/3 and 5.1 million viewers.
