Ratings Strong As Playoffs Arrive

Alan Pergament of the Buffalo News reports that the Sabres Eastern Conference clinching victory over Pittsburgh drew a very good rating on Versus:
NBC has to be impressed by Buffalo’s TV ratings. The Sabres’ win over Pittsburgh Tuesday to clinch the Eastern Conference title had an incredibly strong 12.2 rating here on Versus even though it was competing for separate hours with “American Idol” (16.9) and “Dancing with the Stars” (11.4).
It will be interesting to see if the first round match-up with the Islanders can crack a 20.0 local average. Versus will try to get Buffalo on the air as much as it can both before and after its exclusive rights kick in.
