Last night's game brought a 2.7 viewer rating with 4.3 million viewers and was the most-watched regular season game since 1996 for TNT. It was also the highest-rating game on cable since Christmas of 2004 when ESPN televised a game between the Indiana Pacers and the Detroit Pistons, their first game against each other after the famous brawl between players and fans in 2003.
Lebron-Kobe on Sunday...national television? At this rate, this game will probably smash records this weekend...biggest nationally televised game in the last 10 years anybody?
The NBA is back.
