Chicago Blackhawks game generates highest TV rating in 20 years

| No Comments

Big games often generate big ratings when they are televised. Last Saturday's WGN-Channel 9 hockey game telecast featuring the resurgent Chicago Blackhawks and the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins was no exception. It brought the highest ratings for a regularly-scheduled televised Blackhawks game in more than two decades, with a 3.2 rating. The Blackhawks-Penguins game rating peaked at 5.7.

So far this season, the Blackhawks game telecasts are averaging a 1.7 rating in the key 25 to 54 demo, up 89 percent versus a year ago. By the way, the Blackhawks won Saturday's game in overtime 2-1.
