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?
