NBA ratings stay strong

Game four grabs 19.1 rating, 33 share

The Chicago Bulls’ Wednesday victory over the Utah Jazz in game four of this year’s NBA Finals has scored a 19.1 rating, 33 share, second-highest game-four rating ever and tied for the seventh-best rating of any type in NBA history.

After four games, the Bulls-Jazz series remains on an NBA-record pace, averaging 17.5/31. That keeps it ahead of 1993’s four-game 17.1/31, though that series rallied for a final 18.0/33, still the record for a completed series. The chances of this year’s matchup finishing with the record may depend on the Jazz win-ning at least one more game before the series concludes.

Wednesday’s Bulls-Jazz contest was watched at least in part by an estimated 58 million U.S. viewers, ranking it fourth among all telecasts in NBA history, though ongoing population increases give recent games an edge over older games in such total-viewer comparisons.
