You love watching Lakers/Celtics, ratings up 36 percent

watching_tv.jpgApparently, you all care more about the Lakers/Celtics outcome than you do The Next Food Network Star.

Once again the NBA Finals drew a huge audience Sunday night, a 12.8 overnight rating, the highest game of the series thus far. That number means nearly 17 million people were watching Paul Pierce pretending to be Randy Moss and Ron Artest choking away free throws.

Those numbers are up 36 percent over last year, when either you didn’t care as much about Los Angeles and Orlando, or you found the Next Food Network Star more gripping.

This remains the most watched finals since 2004, which is when the nation could not take their eyes off the fantastic team defense of the Pistons and the fantastic hair of Ben Wallace.

    LOL that is pathetic. More people watch American Idol. I bet the soccer match between England and USA had a better rating.

    England/USA is a battle of countries and therefore should attract more audience like the olympics BUT yes, one single game of NBA, last night game 5 did much better than world cup game on saturday. NBA got 18mm to 13mm for world cup (both on ABC). Compare that to other notable but not followed US teams, like the US Olympic Hockey teams run in the olympics, that game vs. canada got a high rating of 35mm and averaged 28mm. Come on, not even close for all the publicity!
