Final Ratings: NBC Sports Net Gets Fourth-Best NHL Audience, But F1 Struggling

NBC Sports Network averaged 847,000 viewers for the Sabres-Bruins game on Wednesday night, which marked the first massive public gathering in Boston since Monday's marathon bombings. That audience marked the net’s fourth-best viewership for an NHL regular-season game on record (NBC). Meanwhile, NBC Sports Net is averaging 119,000 viewers for three live F1 telecasts to date, which have all aired during early morning hours. That figure is down 52% from 250,000 viewers for the same three races on Speed last year. Replays for those races on Sunday afternoons are averaging 145,000 viewers, down 44% from the replays last year on Speed (Austin Karp, Assistant Managing Editor).
