MSG has announced that the Rangers television ratings are up a ridiculous 187 percent…
"Through 11 games on MSG or MSG+, Rangers telecasts have averaged a 1.95 Nielsen household rating, up 187% compared to the first 11 games of the 2011-12 regular season (0.68 HH) and up 97% compared to the 2011-12 season final average (0.99 HH)."
It was also announced that starting tonight after the Rangers/Islanders matchup, MSG Network is extending its post game coverage an additional half hour with “Rangers Extra,” a new 30-minute show that will be added to MSG’s post game schedule for the rest of the regular season.
…so much for everyone's declarations during the lockout that they were done with the sport. As I noted during the lockout, there was no way I was punishing myself by not watching games if they came back and it looks like you guys had the same idea.
…loving the additional half hour of post game coverage as well. At least, I'll be loving it after wins. After losses? Not so much.
