That Didn't Last Long

The regular season ratings record on Versus falls in just one week. From Kuklas Korner:

Versus earned a 0.4 cable Nielsen rating for Monday night’s Rangers-Penguins game, making it the most-watched NHL regular-season telecast ever for the network and the biggest Monday 7:00-9:45pm ET slot ever outside of the NHL playoffs and Tour de France. Versus earned a 0.9 in N.Y., its highest ever for that market, and a 6.1 in Pittsburgh.

It was a nearly identical figure, but a new record nonetheless.
