MTH Posted December 3, 2021 Share Posted December 3, 2021 (edited) Last season NBC noted that the ratings for the NHL were the lowest ever for NBC. NHL has a new TV (media) contract this year. Ratings so far are extremely bad. How bad? From Twitter @NhlRatings 'NHL TV Buzz' Quote Phillip Wu @phillip_wu Nov 11 Replying to @phillip_wu and @NhlRatings Make that three weeks in a row: Wed Nov 10 -Wild @ Coyotes (TNT) 234,000 (0.06) Wed Nov 10 - NHL on TNT Pre-Game 285,000 (0.08) AEW wrestling (avg. 910,000 viewers) preceded the NHL pre-game all three weeks, so some of the pre-game viewers were almost certainly AEW leftovers. The NHL is in bad shape. In Canada, much the same: Quote NHL TV Buzz Retweeted Adam Seaborn @AHBSeaborn · Nov 22 More Canadiens under 35 watched the Qatar GP on TSN than Leafs/Islanders on Sportsnet Ontario Here are the latest ratings: Quote Adam Seaborn @AHBSeaborn · Nov 29 Sports TV Ratings November 26th: HOCKEY - TOR/SJ: 551k (SNO) CURLING - THCT Prime: 356k (TSN) BASKETBALL - Raps/Pacers: 326k (TSN) CURLING - THCT Early: 299k (TSN) CURLING - THCT Daytime: 222k (TSN) HOCKEY - VAN/COL: 158k (SN Pac) HOCKEY - WIN/MIN: 122k (TSN3) HOCKEY - PIT/NYI: 106k (SN) HOCKEY - NY/BOS: 92k (SN) HOCKEY - OTT/ANA: 76k (TSN5) Where does the league go from here? It's trending in a bad way. I have my reasons why I don't watch. My kids don't care about the NHL. I think Bettman will finally get the axe (hopefully).
