The Washington Capitals’ first Stanley Cup win delivered strong ratings to NBC Thursday night. Opposite hockey, “The Four” started smaller for FOX.
Pending updates, NBC’s Stanley Cup telecast led the night with just over 6 million viewers and a 1.9 rating in adults 18-49. That’s the highest mark of the five-game series; the game’s 5.0 household rating in metered markets was ahead of the 3.8 for the prior two games (1 and 4) that aired on NBC.
The Season 2 premiere of “The Four: Battle for Stardom” fell off quite a bit from its series debut in January. Thursday’s show drew a 0.7, down half a point from its January premiere.
ABC, CBS and The CW aired repeats.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.9/9||0.9/4||0.7/3||0.7/3||0.2/1|

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
