Golden Knights Preseason Ratings Through The Roof

For the first time in franchise history, all seven Golden Knights preseason games are being shown on TV. Last year just two were broadcast and the first year it was hard to even get any because of #CoxBlocked.

However, this year, KTNV stepped up to broadcast them all and it’s paying off in a big way in regards to ratings.

Just four games into the preseason, three games have pulled in at least a 4.6 rating and the same three garnered at least an eight share. That means 8% of televisions that were turned on in the Las Vegas area were watching a meaningless exhibition game. Here are all four game’s numbers.

vs. Arizona – 2.8 Rating / 5 Share
at Colorado – 4.9 Rating / 9 Share
at Los Angeles – 5.0 Rating / 9 Share
at San Jose – 4.6 Rating / 8 Share

Of course, the numbers are better for the road games as 17,767 fans were in the building watching the home game. The three road games average a 4.8 rating and a 8.7 share. If that was to continue for the entire regular season, it would rank in the top three in the NHL for TV ratings.

And these are preseason games!

There are three preseason games left, all at home, and then it’s time for the one that counts on October 2nd on NBCSN.

Who knows what the outcome of the game will be (the Golden Knights better win), but one thing that is for sure, a ridiculous amount of people in the Vegas valley will be watching.

    It’s too bad that you’re only broadcasting them locally that people can’t watch it if they’re out of the state for business purposes and online like they like thank goodness some other people are sharing them with us but if you want to be successful you should share it with everybody even lifestream online

    Nhl66.ir streams also… and it’s free

    Not true Ken, I subscribed to NHL tv last year in hopes of watching the Golden Knights but EVERY game was blacked out! I have heard if I fool with a VPN then maybe I can catch the games but I am reluctant to waste money again if it doesn’t work. Frustrated in Boise

    • Boise is technically in the VGK territory I guess. That’s weird.

        So dallas is an 8hour drive for me. But it’s in my market.

        Even weirder to me is that Jackson, Wyoming is in Golden Knights territory too. The Knights had a road tour last year (summer 2018) and went to Reno SLC Boise and Jackson. Jon Merrill was here in Boise to sign autographs. Hopefully, when Seattle gets a team my blackout situation will end. By the way, we have a double whammy; the Avalanche are also blacked out in Boise

          I spent the summer in Montana (near Bozeman) and I bet I saw 10 VGK hats, shirts or bumper stickers for every 1 piece of Avs or Sharks-branded swag. I was pleasantly surprised how VGK has become the go-to team in that area. Guess the bus tours, the TV deal and Foley having his properties/cattle biz up there have been great for the Knights.

    I listen to KRLV (Fox Sports Las Vegas) on the Simple Radio App everywhere I go. If on TV, I sync it up with the TV broadcast as radio is usually 30 seconds or so behind.

    It’s been great to not illegally stream the games. I hope sports net can team up with a company like youtubetv.
