TNT’s Cleveland Cavaliers-Atlanta Hawks NBA Eastern Conference finals telecast last night scored 6.8 million viewers, the network said Thursday.
The game, which the Cavaliers won to take a 1-0 lead in the best of seven game series, was the highest rated and the most-watched NBA game telecast on the network this season. The 6.8 million viewers was up 8% over the network’s coverage of the first game of the Western Conference finals last year, according to TNT officials.
TNT’s Inside The NBA series averaged a 2.6 overnight rating, ranking it as the second highest-rated program of the night across cable behind the Cavaliers-Hawks telecast.
TNT will air game two of the Eastern Conference Finals Friday from Atlanta.
