Comcast SportsNet, the television home for the most games and most comprehensive coverage of Chicago Blackhawks NHL Playoffs coverage in HD, delivered its highest Blackhawks ratings ever last evening (April 16) -- a 4.45 household rating for its live coverage of the Blackhawks first round home ice battle against the Calgary Flames.

In this thrilling overtime playoff victory by the Blackhawks, Comcast SportsNet attracted approx. 155,400 households for the entire game and scored a 5.9 peak rating during the 9:45 PM quarter-hour (over 206,000 households).  The 4.45 single game ratings record on Comcast SportsNet is the regional sports network’s highest Blackhawks game rating to date and it is also the highest Blackhawks “playoff” game rating in 15 years (previously held on April 26, 1994 when the Blackhawks faced the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 5 of a first round series on SportsChannel). Source for all ratings information is provided by Nielsen Media Research.

Comcast SportsNet was also the #1-highest rated television network in the Chicago market last night for the key advertising demo of Adults 25-54 during the game time period of 9:00-10:30 PM.  In addition, Comcast SportsNet was #1 overall in the market for Men 18-34, Men 18-49 & Men 25-54 for the entire length of the game (7:30-10:30 PM). 

During the 9:00 PM quarter-hour when Comcast SportsNet was carrying the Blackhawks and Comcast SportsNet “Plus” (CSN+/CLTV) was airing the White Sox game, the network posted a combined 10.0 household rating on both networks (approx. 350,000 households).  In addition, the combined ratings totals for yesterday’s Blackhawks (4.45), White Sox (2.85) and Cubs (3.97) game telecasts on Comcast SportsNet scored an 11.3 household “cume” rating (approx. 400,000 households tuning in for Comcast SportsNet’s tripleheader).
