Colorado Avalanche’s Game 4 NHL Stanley Cup Win Sees Viewership Rise For ABC – Deadline

Game 4 of the 2022 Stanley Cup Finals was a win for the Colorado Avalanche and ABC on Wednesday night.

A goal by Avalanche center Nazem Kadri in the OT of their duel with reigning champions Tampa Bay Lightning removed Colorado just one win from its first Stanley Cup since 2001. All of the drama on the ice at Tampa’s Amalie Arena last night also saw the Disney Own Network wins the night in prime time among 18-49 year old adults and overall audience in early numbers.

The Avalanche’s 3-2 win has a 0.9 rating in the key demo and 3.6 million viewers in the 8-11pm period, according to Nielsen.

Tied to the 8 p.m. broadcast from The price is right at night On CBS for total eyeballs, Game 4 is up a little over 11% in viewership from the early results for Game 3 on June 20th. This Lightning 6-2 win surged to around 4.1 million viewers and a 1.2 rating in the final dates.

Looking back at the 2021 Stanley Cup, ABC sees stratospheric leaps over NBC’s coverage over the past year. Only the second Game 3 of a Stanley Cup to be broadcast on any television network in over a decade and a half, the final numbers for Game 3 of the 2022 NHL Showdown had increased by a whopping 65% in total audience and a staggering 83% in viewer ratings .

Game 3 of 2021, played on July 2 last year, saw then-defending Lightning School champions the Montreal Canadiens go 6-3 in metropolitan Quebec. Looking for a four-game sweep, the Lightning were hampered by the Canadiens in Game 4 on July 5 in Montreal. This fight attracted 2.92 million viewers for the Comcast-owned network. It was all over on July 7 when Tampa beat Montreal 1-0 to lift the trophy. In a very East Coast-focused finale, this 5th game of 2021 was seen by 3.51 million viewers and had a demo rating of 1.9.

Elsewhere in primetime, the penultimate episode of the CW The LightningSeason eight sped things up a bit. With a viewing record of two months, the superhero series attracted nearly 620,000 viewers. Regarding the 18-49 crowd, flash rated again at 0.1

NBC repeated it all Wednesday during Fox’s master chef (0.4, 2.2M4) and So you think you can dance (0.3, 1.51m) were down slightly among audiences but at the same level as last week among 18-49 year olds.

After a night of strong game show performances, both new and repeat, came second overall to CBS’ encore of One Last Time: A Night Out with Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga special is likely to have suffered with 1.65 million viewers and a rate of 0.2 against the ice hockey competition.
