The surprising Eastern Conference finals have delivered strong ratings for TNT.

Through four games of the Cleveland-Orlando series, the network was averaging a 5.2 national rating, up 27 percent from last year, when it carried the Western Conference finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs.

Orlando's 116-114 overtime victory Tuesday that gave the Magic a 3-1 lead over the top-seeded Cavaliers drew 10.1 million viewers, making it the most watched NBA playoff game in cable TV history. The Lakers and Denver Nuggets drew 9.9 million for ESPN for Game 4 of their series.

this is an exciting series, i seriously hope it ends in orlando!!!

imo, whoever wins on saturday is going to win the series.
(this is obvious for orlando, but if cleveland wins game 6 they have homecourt game 7, and i don't see them relinquishing that.)

game 6 is going to be fun to watch.

Ya i think as its not Lakers v ________ or Spurs v ___________ or Pistons v _______ it will get good ratings. Nuggets and the magic are fresh new faces in a league that was drenched in laker spur pistons type matches for the last 6 years before last.
