Blackhawks-Lightning Stanley Cup Final Game 5 does 3.8 overnight rating


The Chicago Blackhawks 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning in game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final to take a 3-2 series lead averaged a 3.82 overnight rating on NBC.

That 3.82 rating was down from the 4.6 in last year’s game 5, but last year’s game 5 had several differences: it was on a Friday, the game had 2 overtimes and it was the deciding game of the series.

Top local markets:

  1. Chicago: 26.2
  2. Tampa: 14.3
  3. Buffalo: 7.1
  4. Milwaukee: 6.4
  5. Minneapolis/St. Paul: 5.4

Overnight household rating = the live+same day DVR overnight metered-market household rating from the top 56 Nielsen television markets. The 56 markets (out of 210 total) account for about 70% of the US TV-viewing population. The  overnight household rating is  the percentage of the households that were tuned-in in those markets

  1. The 14.3 represents the % of homes with a TV not the % of people tuned in. So, it’s very likely more people actually tuned in to watch the game.
