Monday’s game four between the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers set the record for cable viewing of an NBA game with 9.88 million. A record that would last exactly one night. Tuesday’s matchup between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Orlando Magic on TNT that the Magic won in overtime averaged 10.1 million.
Jon & Kate Plus 8’s whopping 9.8 million on Monday night will now do no better than third for the week and there are still more NBA playoffs to come.
