    NBA seems to be doing pretty good this year.

  • Dave

    Um, are the Daily Show and Colbert off this week or repeats because this is the second consecutive day that I don’t see them on the table.

  • RHONJd

    Go RHOC!

  • Ram510

    Hopefully The Game continues to grow from here til the finale

  • Norman

    @Dave

    Yes, they are reruns this week.

  • Dave

    Thanks Norman!

  • Andy

    The Heat game should’ve been way higher, this is where the league needed the Chicago Bulls.

    NHL needs to start focusing on building its West Coast teams up so they can get the same type of ratings the East gets.

  • David

    The Heat series might pick up now because it is 1-1. I think people were still thinking sweep because they did not realize how important Bosh was since everyone was calling him the “weak link.”

    The Spurs will destroy everyone in their path anyway so the rest is just good entertainment until they hand Duncan another trophy.

  • Mr Mikey

    Good rating for inside the nba. I guess a lot of people were anticipating the shirt off.

  • Leonard

    Inside the NBA’s ratings have been up this postseason over 2 million viewers. This probably the most successful post-game show on all television right now with the exception of The OT on FOX.

    I agree with Andy about the NHL, those ratings were solid compared to past years where a game like that would only clear 400k at best but now its getting closer to a million viewers. The NHL needs to capitalize off of L.A. Kings success and build up the West Coast pro hockey scene like they did back in the 90s when Gretzky got there and the Mighty Ducks movies.

  • Matt

    Yet another reason why the Coyotes need to get the boot from the NHL. Thank God they aren’t gonna win this series.

  • baja7475

    Does anybody now how “Best Ink” Finale ratings were.
    Thanks

  • Torrid

    For what’s about to follow…a moment of silence please…

    Sorry guys you can’t spin this, hockey’s choking on more Basketball dust – but what else is new, it is what it is; live with it because you can’t change it (and a word to the wise… its gonna get worse… shhhhh don’t say I told you OK!) LOL!

  • TatiG

    NBA red hot. I think NHL’s bright side is Philly & Pen. but both of those are out. Kings? I don’t think it will work. LA is latino country, and they know, it does not snow in LA. gimmicks. NHL need to bring the teams back to Canada proto. Stop trying to trick people who live in the desert that they might like hockey. Quebec comes to mind.

  • Matt

    Lol, Torrid thinks beating a series featuring the Coyotes to a pulp is an accomplishment. Good one.

    Tati, realistically, Quebec City is the only other Canadian city that should have a team.

    Then move the Panthers to Seattle and the Islanders to Milwaukee and boom.

  • Jared

    fact or faked on syfy is no longer the hit it once was..
