NBC Sees Overnight Ratings Down For First NHL Playoff Telecasts Of '11
Published April 18, 2011
UNDER REVIEW: In N.Y., Phil Mushnick writes NBC "has more NHL analysts than it has hockey to analyze," but if announcer Mike Emrick "were the voice of the National Knitting League, I'd watch." Meanwhile, Mushnick notes through the first two games of the Rangers-Capitals series, Verizon FiOS customers in the N.Y. market "were 'treated' to several extra seconds of local insert commercials, thus viewers lost live action after MSG resumed the game telecast" (N.Y. POST, 4/18).
