    Last night’s game between the Heat and Pacers was the closest you’ll get to 80’s-early 90’s NBA basketball.

  • Mr Mikey

    Not close to the lakers-thunder matchup but still a solid rating. And why the hell is the nhl having their west and east finals on nbc sports net?

  • TatiG

    “Last night’s game between the Heat and Pacers was the closest you’ll get to 80?s-early 90?s NBA basketball.”

    Dirty you mean? Might be good for tough guys, but NBA is a family show. Stern needs to clean that up.

  • TatiG

    But yeah, 5.5 mil for a Conference Semi Final is an awesome number. Can’t wait for Boston v. Miami.

    Inside the NBA playoffs getting 2.5 million viewers is insane.

  • Steve-A

    THEGAME IS A SHADOW OF ITS CABLE DEBUT. WITH THE TWO LEADS LEAVING, SEASON SIX SHOULD NOT GO FORWARD.

  • Jimmy

    Mr. Mikey: Why not? Its not like any other network would air the games. Unless you want the NHL Network to air them exclusively.

  • Ram510

    The Game was ok last night. But I think season 6 should be the last

  • Melanie

    Go Miami Heat!! :)

  • Jenny

    Wait a minute so let’s stay together is beating the game? When did this start happening?

  • RyanCanada

    the game should be cancelled, BET ruined that show! i was such a big fan, but it honest to god sucks now.

  • Mike

    No United Stats? Ouch.

  • sam

    united stats of america anyone??

  • Robert Pt

    @TatiG, The Nba is a family show then there shouldn’t be any hard fouls? So then the NHL is NOT a family show, they beat the living lights out of each other EVERY GAME, and openly FIGHT without referees stoping them. The “dirty” game the Heat and Pacers played last night would be a “clean” NHL game in comparison.

  • Hillbilly

    I finally recorded & watched Robot Chicken. Never heard of it until i saw it here. How it gets the viewers it does is beyond me. :???:

  • Torrid

    What is this NHL that Robert Pt speaks of? My, with all that purported fighting, bravado and machismo it must be drawing crowds of manly men like flies to honey! Right?

    NHL CONFERENCE FINALS L NBCSN 09:00PM 1.217 0.5 ***where r the He men?

    Looks like hockey is a bust when it comes to attracting men; why does it seem like the only people who constantly tout the so-called ‘toughness’ of the NHL are hockey fans – nobody else seems to buy that clap-trap but themselves, regardless of how u disguise it – playing dress-up in poofy-shirts while ice-dancing and having a propensity for bleeding on every contact kinda doesn’t look too tough for most of us – some of us may even think it a little bit (forgive me) girly. :)

    Hey hockey fans – your guys are legends only in your minds, for the rest of america ….meh!

  • Roco

    Yeah The Game needs to retire, BET ruined a great show, Pooch and Tia leaving, Season 6 should be its last..

  • Samuel

    I’ve been noticing that Inside the NBA’s numbers are up this year.

    The NHL did really well for the Western Conference closeout game.

    I can’t wait to see how the Finals do if the Rangers can comeback against the Devils and face the Kings making New York vs. LA, either way it will be New York vs. LA but the Devils are not marketed as well as the Rangers are.
