NHL Game 4 overnight ratings rebound

Overnight
ratings for Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals were up from the previous game and
down from last year.

The
Anaheim Ducks’ 3-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Monday night received a
2.3 overnight rating and a 4 share on NBC, the network said Tuesday. That was
up from the 1.5/3 for Saturday night’s Game 3, but down 4 percent from last
year’s Game 4 between
Edmonton and

Carolina, which drew a
2.4/5.

The
decline wasn’t as large as it had been for Game 3, when ratings were down 12
percent from last year.

Overnight
ratings measure the 55 largest television markets in the

United States,
and each overnight rating point represents about 735,000 households.

The rating
is the percentage watching a telecast among all homes with televisions, and the
share is the percentage tuned in to a broadcast among those households with
televisions on at the time.
