NBA Finals Game 4 Drew Big TV Ratings

by June 14, 2013

The first three games of the NBA Finals didn’t make execs at ABC very happy, as they saw slipping television ratings. Last night however, with the Miami Heat down 2-1 to the San Antonio Spurs, plenty of people tuned in. Per the Express-News: “Game 4 of the NBA Finals drew a 12.0 overnight rating on ABC on Thursday, the third-highest for Finals Game 4 since the network reacquired broadcast rights before the 2002-03 season. Only last year’s 12.4 for Miami/Oklahoma City and 14.4 for Lakers/Detroit in 2004 were better. It was also the highest of this year’s series, and the second-highest rating for any Finals game involving the Spurs.”
