I'm a Buffalo Sabres fan that has always taken an interest in television ratings because it gives a quantitative analysis on how interested cities are in my favorite sport. Obviously, using TV ratings (an inexact science to begin with) alone won't give you a fully accurate picture, but at the very least it shows a rough level of interest. Information about NHL television ratings is widely available, but often difficult to search for. Hopefully, this blog will provide an easy place to get the information for those who like to see the numbers. It will mainly be a collection of excerpts from Buffalo News television reporter Alan Pergament, WIVB researcher Bob Gallivan, and other media outlets that report on ratings.
