Nashville Predators earn double TV ratings for Stanley Cup playoff game against Carolina
Monday night's Nashville Predators-Carolina Hurricanes game in the Stanley Cup Playoffs earned a combined 4.5 local television rating, according to WTVF-5 senior programming director Mark Binda.
That means 49,604 Nashville households tuned into Bally Sports South and CNBC to see Carolina claim a 5-2 win in the first game of the best-of-seven series, which was played in Raleigh, North Carolina.
That rating is about twice as a high as an average Predators regular-season game.
Game 2 is Wednesday at 7 p.m. also in Raleigh on CNBC and Bally Sports South.
Game 3 on Friday will move to Bridgestone Arena at 6 p.m. and be on the USA Network and Bally Sports South and Game 4, also at Bridgestone Arena, will be Sunday at 1:30 p.m. on NBC Sports and Bally Sports South.
