View Full Version : LeBron’s ‘Decision’ watched by nearly 10M people

07-11-2010, 04:40 PM
NEW YORK (AP)—The Nielsen Co. estimates that 9.95 million people watched LeBron James announce on ESPN that he’s leaving Cleveland to play for the Miami Heat, making it the third-most-watched program on cable television this year. Related “The Decision” that aired Thursday night ranks behind the 12.3 million who watched the NFL Pro Bowl and 11.2 million who watched an episode of “ICarly” on Nickelodeon in January.

The special was of particular interest in Cleveland, where an estimated one in four homes with televisions tuned in.

James’ future can’t yet compare to Kobe Bryant’s present, however. More than 28 million people watched Bryant win his fifth championship last month in the seventh game of the NBA Finals between the L.A. Lakers and Boston Celtics.

I hate how this ruined the actual phrase "the decision".

It's like saying "the situation" now.

Funny how everyone is pissed at him for this, yet everyone watched. LeBron should have been at a podium and done all the talking himself. The guy who interviewed him was annoying.

ICarly? Lebron can't even beat out a little girl. ;)
