GAME 6 ON NBC DELIVERS THIRD-BEST STANLEY CUP FINAL GAME 6 OVERNIGHT ON RECORD

Lightning-Blackhawks on NBC Posts 5.6 HH Rating in Metered Markets

Chicago Delivers Best-Ever 41.0 HH Rating; Tampa Posts Second-Best 15.2

STAMFORD, Conn. – June 16, 2015 – Last night’s Stanley Cup Final series-clinching Game 6 on NBC delivered at 5.6 metered market rating, the third-best for a Game 6 on record (since 1995) and NBC’s fourth-best NHL overnight ever, according to The Nielsen Company.

The 5.6 overnight for Game 6, in which the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-0 to win their third Stanley Cup in six years, trails only the 2010 Game 6 between the Blackhawks and Philadelphia Flyers (5.8) and the 2013 Game 6 between the Blackhawks and Boston Bruins (5.7). Last night’s game is up 40% vs. the 2012 Game 6 between the New Jersey Devils and Los Angeles Kings (4.0).

Locally, the Chicago market delivered a 41.0 HH rating, its highest ever for a Blackhawks game, and a 57 share. The Chicago rating is the highest local rating for any market for a non-Game 7 on NBC. Tampa posted a 15.2 HH rating, its second-best ever on NBC.
