My post the other day about the rise in Islanders ratings this season prompted several readers to inquire about the Knicks and Rangers.

Here you go:

Through the first 36 games, the Knicks were averaging 1.07 percent of area homes, down from 1.19 last season at this point. But the men ages 25-54 demo, which matters to advertisers, was up 33 percent.

The Rangers were down from 1.03 to 0.94, roughly the same drop in percentage terms as the Knicks.

You're welcome. Thanks for asking.
