Thursday night’s LeBron James “The Decision” on ESPN drew a 7.3 household rating in the preliminary overnight ratings.

Compare that to the top rated show on broadcast last night, a repeat of The Mentalist on CBS, which drew a 6.0 household rating in the preliminary overnights.

Update: Here is ESPN’s official press release.

Note that these are household ratings (% of households viewing) not adults 18-49 ratings (% of adults 18-49 viewing) that we typically feature on our site, and being preliminary are subject to adjustment. Although it’s likely the relative ratings gap for adults 18-49 was even greater.
