The 2012 NBA Finals generated the most-watched and highest-rated five-game average for The Finals since 2004 and the second most-watched in ABC history, according to Nielsen.

The Finals averaged 16.9 million viewers and 11.6 million household impressions, up 5 percent from 16.1 million viewers and 11.1 million household impressions last year (Heat vs. Mavericks). The series got a 10.1 household rating, up 6 percent compared to a 9.6 last year through five games.

Thursday’s Game 5 broadcast delivered a 10.9 rating, 18.5 million viewers and 12.5 million household impressions, up 1 percent from Game 5 last year. Miami set a market record for an NBA game with a 40.3 rating. Oklahoma City had its lowest rating of the series, 39.8, well off its record 49.1 for Game 4. Tulsa got a 29.4, which tied its series best.

For comparison purposes, KOCO-5’s rating for last year’s Bedlam football game was 45.0.

For the series, the top 10 local markets were Oklahoma City, 43.8; Miami, 33.1; Tulsa, 26.9; West Palm Beach, 20.1; Cleveland, 17.4; Memphis, 15.9; New Orleans, 14.4;. Atlanta, 14.2; Chicago, 14.1; and San Antonio, 14.0.

ESPN, ABC, David Stern, LeBron James news 24/7 (no offense Heat fans, it's the truth) all go hand in hand.


NBC would never just promote one players like ESPN/ABC would. NBC top executive Dick Ebersol knew how to promote the game. He knew how to promote the NBA's biggest star MJ, but he also did a good job in promoting the other stars as well and it wasn't just about MJ.

Depends on if the knicks are in the finals in ny market. Imagine knicks vs lakers in finals. While yankees play nationals in world series. I think the knick game would out rate yankees cause yanks are old news nowadays. Pretty boring actually. Lots of latinos would watch the baseball mostly

umm the tv ratings would be more for knicks in finals in NY. Hell I can't even talk baseball with most my friends cause they don't like the sport. But they know basketball and football. It's not cool to be a front running yankee fan like it use to be in 90's and early 2000's. Yanks are played out now. And no roids = lame players

I mean look at that freaking intro! Thats how you start off a show! Or a basketball game in this case.

Replace that ABC trash with NBC and their introductions, Replace that tool Mike Breen with Marv Albert and your golden!

**** yeah!

And who's bright idea was it to have that tool Mike Breen covering the finals? He sucks as a Knicks announcer and he sucks as a ABC announcer. The only time he's good is when he says "BANG!". Then he just goes silent for the whole time like an idiot.

Why? Baseball overall as a sport is boring enough as it is today. Now imagine a team like the yankees who have the most championships in that sport that win it almost every decade AT LEAST ONCE. Knicks Havn't won anything since when? 1970 something?

Theres much more basketball fans today, and as a result, I would not only imagine rating wise the Knicks out doing the yankees in their respective championship ratings wise, but CRUSHINGLY destroy the yankees ratings wise if the Knicks made it to the NBA finals.

Hell, I would go as far to say that the knicks vs heat EC finals would get more views then yanks world series today.

I dont disagree, but In NY people still love there baseball,Plus frontrunners will be there. Knicks to me would be amazing, I would die happy if we could win it all. IN ny its Knicks>Giants>Yankees>Jets>mets
