More People in the Washington D.C. TV Market Watched the NFL Draft than Game 7 of the Capitals and Bruins

Ratings! From the DC Sports Bog:

If you combine the numbers from ESPN and the NFL Network, the draft did an 8.08 in the D.C. television market, equal to about 191,000 D.C.-area households.

… the draft — which included the announcement that the Redskins were taking a player we already knew they were taking — did better (barely) in this market than Game 7 of the Caps-Bruins series on Comcast SportsNet, which earned an 8.01.

Reminder: The Caps won game seven in overtime, 4-3. DC’s a football town, anyway. If the Capitals make the Stanley Cup, do those ratings beat a Redskins preseason game?

Hey, anything to quit talking about Kirk Cousins vs. RG3! Or should I say, Heath Shuler vs. Gus Frerotte, redux? [Bog]
