MSGN’s Knicks Ratings Up 47%


The team’s record on the court might only be 2-3, but the New York Knicks have gotten off to a strong start on the small screen this season.

The National Basketball Association club, owned by Cablevision Systems Corp., has averaged a 1.84 household rating on Madison Square Garden Network within the New York DMA -- a number translating into 134,320 households and 154,000 total viewers on average.

Ratings were up 47% through the first five Knicks games last season on MSGN, which is also owned by Cablevision.
