Johan Santana No-Hitter Gets Huge SNY Numbers

There’s nothing like a great pitching performance to spark some interest in a team. Of course, Friday night, Johan Santana did the unthinkable, pitching the Mets to their first no-hitter in season number 51.

Santana’s gem against the Cardinals gave SNY big ratings. In the final quarter-hour from 9:45 to 10 p.m. as Santana was about to make history, SNY pulled in 744,000 total viewers. That peak timeframe notched a 7.73 Household rating.

Fans united on SNY, Mets faithful or not, to witness a “Where Were You When?” moment. SNY ranked as the most watched station in New York, among all cable and broadcast outlets, from 7:30 to 10:15 p.m. in Households and Total Viewers.

Delving deeper, Santana’s masterful feat averaged a 4.18 household rating, which represents the highest-rated (non-interleague) primetime game on SNY in nearly three years.

The Mets Post-Game Live garnered a 2.64 household rating, the best post game showing since 2009.
