  • Dillan

    Here come the “MTV isnt releasing their numbers early” nonsense.

  • Michael

    Wow, people love themselves some trashy entertainment with BGC, lol.

  • The End

    Nothing really stands out on this ratings release as doing remarkably, everything is rating as normal really.

  • Mr Mikey

    Oh My! Those are terrible numbers for the western conference finals.

  • Tati

    @Mr Mikey oh yeah. Memphis v. San Antonio is not exactly a TV draw. OKC v. SAS would’ve been better.

    Plus, Memphis has refused to show up so far.

  • shawn

    The nba playoff ratings had been strong so far, but just abysmal wcf numbers.
    Hopefully san antonio will finally go away after this year, they have been ratings killers for 10 years.

  • DEF

    Could someone post the Awkward numbers, please?

  • rob60990

    Remember when The Game premiered on BET with a 3.7? It’s doing ok for cable standards though.

  • sam

    Inside Amy Schumer only dropped .1 without a new Tosh.0 as a lead in. Great news. This show is so funny, if you havnt already check it out

  • MichaelChickless

    I apparently can’t post in any other article except this one. I’m like 1 out of 15 here today.

  • Cheryblosen

    Can someone post Kesha numbers

  • kbmv

    That’s just aweful for the Mem vs SAS game. Only 4.6 mil viewers. The NBA got some terrible matchups. All small market teams. Even Miami is small market although they have the biggest star. Although the ratings will be lower than last year, this is actually good for the NBA’s future. The knock on the league was that small markets couldn’t compete well they got what they wanted. But i wanna see the Bulls, Lakers, Clippers, Knicks, Celtics, Heat compete for the title.

  • JR

    The ratings should be better for tonight’s game because of Miami, but they’ll probably drop unless the Pacers somehow make the series competitive. It sucks for ESPN that they got the Western conference finals this year and OKC or some other big name team didn’t make it. I like the Spurs but they are definitely a ratings killer.

  • Matt

    Boy, Torrid has been awfully quiet lately…

  • kbmv

    This WCF is like in 07 when it was Spurs vs Jazz. The Spurs seem to always deliver terrible ratings. Other than last year which was because of Durant, Westbrook and the Thunder not the boring old Spurs. I hope this is the last time we see them make it this far.

  • DW

    the NBA numbers are bad for 2 reasons. 1.NBA fans have this notion that if your not in a big market , that people shouldn’t care for basketball when the small market is the exciting aspect of the sport as its more of a team sport and an individual one. 2. its going into its second month. people are getting restless. the NBA needs to cut the playoffs down and schedule the playoffs better.

    still don’t know why MTV isn’t releasing numbers. the adventures of Jenna Hamilton has to better than Mr. “i don’t know what it means to play us out”.

  • the1&onlyk

    @kbmv and rest of the h8ters. I love the spurs n hav loved the spurs since 1999 and im from FL. I wont understand for the life of me why everyone h8tes on the spurs n insists they are boring and old. Look at what the spurs hav accomplished since 1999. Can you say that about any other teams? no! That 14 3pter game on Sun n last nights game show the spurs are true warriors everyone is just jealous because they want their team to win like the spurs. while everyone else always seems to be missing a piece the spurs continue to build n build n win n win Even after ther top dogs leave their legacy will live on. Dont h8te appreciate. btw it was still top watched on cable n im sure even beat some some network shows. so what up ?

  • Matt

    As seems to be the usual these days, NHL trending up, NBA not so much.

  • JR

    Why does it have to be a competition between hockey and basketball? Can’t someone enjoy both? It all depends on the teams anyway. The ratings for the NHL finals last year were pretty dismal, while in the NBA it seems inevitable that Miami will win their second championship in a row so interest is lower. Things always go up and down.
