1 Comment

According to the Associated Press, Sunday night’s NBA Finals game drew a very impressive 10.9 overnight rating, up 10 percent from the 9.9 rating game 2 of the 2009 Finals drew. The 10.9 overnight rating is the highest rating for a NBA Finals game two since 2004, when the Shaq/Kobe/Malone/Payton Lakers faced the Detroit Pistons in the Finals. 

Thursday night’s game 1 drew a 10.4 overnight rating, which represented a 17% increase from game 1 of the 2009 finals. We don’t know what will happen over the rest of this series, but it seems like a fairly safe bet that a lot of people will be watching.
