Everybody Is Watching The Blackhawks

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Jun 2, 2010 2:40PM

With the number of brand-spanking new Blackhawks jerseys we've seen folks wearing around town, we knew the team's bandwagon was getting pretty full. After all, everyone loves a winner and wants to be a part. But at least the new fans are translating to big ratings, good news for a league still recovering from missing an entire season just a few years ago. Monday night's Game Two was the highest rated Stanley Cup Finals Game Two ever. The overnights in Chicago were also big: a 25.1 rating and 39 share. Here's hoping both the high ratings and the victorious results continue tonight when the puck drops on Game Three. It should be interesting to see how much ratings drop as the series now switches to cable network Versus for Games Three and Four.
