TEAM USA WOMEN'S HOCKEY GOLD MEDAL VICTORY IS MOST WATCHED LATE-NIGHT SHOW IN NBCSN HISTORY

Overtime & Shootout of Women's Hockey Final Was Also Simulcast on NBC

NBC Ranks #1 in Primetime for 70th Consecutive Olympic Night

Women's Figure Skating Live Tonight at 8 p.m. ET on NBC and NBCSN

STAMFORD, Conn. - February 22, 2018 - Team USA's thrilling shootout victory over Canada in the women's hockey gold medal game on Wednesday ranks as the most watched late-night program in NBCSN history (since 2003).

The hockey game registered a Total Audience Delivery average of 3.7 million viewers, which included a live NBC simulcast of overtime and the shootout, as well as live streaming by NBC Sports Digital. The NBCSN-only telecast delivered 2.9 million viewers, which is the largest audience ever for the network in the 11 p.m.-2:15 a.m. ET late-night window.

In addition, more than 525,000 uniques watched the live stream of the U.S.-Canada women's gold medal game to rank as NBC Sports Digital's fifth-largest hockey audience ever (behind only four games from the Sochi Olympics, which featured more streaming-friendly morning and afternoon ET game times).

NBC's Wednesday primetime PyeongChang Olympic telecast was by far the most watched show of the night - marking the 70th consecutive night that an NBC Olympics presentation has topped primetime. This streak began with Day 14 of the 2010 Vancouver Games.

Last night's NBC/NBCSN viewership peaked at 17.9 million viewers from 10-10:15 p.m. ET, for women's alpine skiing.

NOTABLE...

· Wednesday night's NBC/NBCSN average of 16.3 million viewers dominated the TV competition - a 63% advantage over the combined 10.0 million primetime viewers for ABC, CBS and FOX. The NBC-only 14.1 million viewers in the 8-11 p.m. ET primetime window topped by 41% the other broadcast networks - marking the most dominant 2nd Wednesday of Winter Games coverage since the 2002 Salt Lake Olympics.

· Last night's Total Audience Delivery provided an increase of 16% over the NBC broadcast viewership (TAD chart below) - marking the 12th consecutive night of double-digit TAD lift. NBC Olympics' Total Audience Delivery measures broader consumption by calculating average minute viewing across broadcast, cable, and digital. NBC Sports Digital delivered an average minute audience of 164,000 for Wednesday night's coverage.

· NBC's PyeongChang Olympics primetime broadcast last night (8-11 p.m. ET) averaged 14.1 million viewers and posted an 8.3/15 household rating. Viewership includes the West Coast primetime encore.
