    Game 3 tomorrow. Only saving grace is that GayGT starts at 8, Finals game 3 starts at 9. I'm predicting 1.8 share for GayGT.

    NBA FINALS GAME 2 SETS RECORD WITH 12.9 OVERNIGHT
    Posted by Joe Lucia on Jun 8, 2015 11:30

    The NBA Finals matchup between the Cavs and Warriors is the gift that keeps on giving for ESPN. Cleveland’s overtime triumph in Game 2 drew a 12.9 overnight rating on ABC, up 26% from last year’s 10.2 for Spurs-Heat Game 2. The 12.9 overnight is also the highest rating ever for a Game 2 on ABC.

    In Cleveland, the game drew an incredible 42.1 overnight while in San Francisco, the game drew an outstanding 31.7 overnight. Both of those markets are records for any NBA game on ABC or ESPN, topping the records set…during Game 1 on Thursday.

    Through two games, the series is averaging a 12.9 rating, making it the highest-rated ever on record for ABC. If that 12.9 can hold up throughout the rest of the series (and there’s really no reason it shouldn’t), we’re looking at potentially the highest-rated Finals since 1998’s Bulls-Jazz series, which is the highest-rated Finals ever.

    This is the series ESPN wanted – the MVP and one of the best teams in league history against the preseason favorite and one of the best players of all-time. So far, the series has lived up to expectations on the court and in the ratings battle off the court, and I doubt we’re going to see the ratings start to fall over the rest of the series.

    Hopefully Howard will break his own record for all time low AGT ratings, I think it's a 1.6 in his first year when Entertainment Weekly made him "Loser of the Summer". Looking forward to @puncher 's astute ratings rundown.

    There is a huge possibility that AGT is going to pull in below a 2.0 rating...which would be horrendous this early in the season. This years Finals has been very intriguing, and people are watching.....so it spells doom for AGT tomorrow night. Unfortunately, we won't hear a word from Howie or Hein.

    when they factor in DVR viewing the ratings are 25% higher than the overnight ratings, they do Live+ 3 and 7 days. So far the Live+ 3 ratings increase by 25%, the Live+ & days aren't out yet.

    "Robin, everyone knows AGT is a communal experience. If a single TV is tuned in, at least 10 of my fans are watching, am I right?"

    I would turn the TV off before I would watch either of them.
    The NBA is so lax on the rules it's comical. It's like travelling doesn't exist and they allow everything to set up for the big dunk everyone wants to see.
    Of course AGT just sucks balls with or without Wiggy.

    ITS A STAR DRIVEN LEAGUE. Its not quite to the level of pro wrestling with predetermined outcomes, but during the playoffs and Finals the rules are extremely subjective...

    "Robin everyone knows how huge pro bowling has become, thats the reason we were edged. If NBC would stop juggling the day we're aired you'd see something."

    Even if your pathetic attempts at spinning numbers made any sense, here's the problem- Is anyone who's watching this piece of shit show on their DVR watching the commercials? No. So NBC doesn't give a fuck about those numbers. They care about the key demo overnights and that's why those are the ones that get reported.

    is there any reason why tv stations dont have the shows also on their websites?
    ppl would watch the ads there too. and they could be interactive and more effective.
