Re: “What the Puck

"If you broadcast, they will watch." Are you sure about that? They just tried broadcasting the Stanley Cup finals on NBC. Results? Awesome ratings? So-so ratings? Check out the link: http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?section=sports&id=5366382 A snippet: "The Stanley Cup finals have brought record low ratings to NBC -- and not just for sports. Saturday night's Game 3 equaled NBC's lowest rating ever for a prime-time program." Lowest ratings. Ever. Worse than all those Who's the Boss re-runs. Worse than a holiday reunion episode of the Waltons. (Were the Waltons on NBC?) Worse than the last season of Night Court. Worst ratings. Ever. Look. I am sure that they could do a lot to improve that. But "worst ratings ever" suggests some serious problems with the level of interest. Yeah, they could increase the interest by broadcasting more games. But when you broadcast Game 3 of the Stanley Cup and you can't beat any television show that the network has ever broadcast... All I am saying is, I think there is at least some evidence arguing that even if you do broadcast it, they won't watch.
