A Few Thursday Afternoon Links


Let’s give you some links this afternoon.

Kevin McGran and Chris Zelkovich of the Toronto Star team up on a story about the good ratings for the NHL Winter Classic.

Broadcasting & Cable says the ratings for the Winter Classic are the best for a regular season NHL game in more than a decade.

A couple of things from Newsday’s Neil Best. First, he reports in his blog that 1050 ESPN Radio in New York has found a New Jersey station to simulcast its signal. And Ticketmaster has now backed off its Florida residents only restriction on those buying tickets for the Giants-Buccaneers game.

The Sports Media Watch blog reports that Fox won last night in the 18-49 demographic with the Sugar Bowl, but lost the overall overnight ratings to NBC. And Zap2It has more on the overnight ratings story.

We get a preview of the Tennessee-San Diego NFL Wild Card Playoff Game from CBS Sports. And CBS Sports will now take over the day-to-day operations of CSTV.

The Orbitcast blog on satellite radio has more on Dan Patrick’s radio show going to XM.

Joseph De Avila of the Wall Street Journal writes about male salons offering beer, wine, ESPN, and pool tables in addition to haircuts. The price for the haircuts are a bit high, but if I can drink a beer before getting a haircut, I’m all for it.
