FSD Ratings Not So Bad Actually

Christy Hammond found some numbers on FSD’s ratings that paint a better picture than last week’s report on their 21.8% decrease.  

Still, the question remains: why have they fallen off so much? As I wrote on the 20th, two explanations come to mind: “interest in the Wings is down this season or people are cutting back on their expenses to the point of dropping cable.” Given Michigan’s horrific economy, I’m leaning toward the dropping cable option.

Along those lines, people may be more focused on just getting by, which may not leave time for leisure activities like watching a three-hour hockey game. 

Of course, that doesn’t explain the high numbers in Buffalo and Pittsburgh, which aren’t exactly rocking and rolling from an economic standpoint.
