NBA Finals Game 4 on ABC Highest-Rated Program of the Night with 11.1 Overnight Rating

23rd Consecutive Time Finals Generate Highest-Rated Program of the Night

The NBA Finals Game 4 on ABC - in which Dallas rallied in the fourth quarter to edge Miami 86-83 - delivered an 11.1 overnight rating and was the highest-rated program of the night in prime time (according to Nielsen). It is the 23rd consecutive time The Finals have generated the highest-rated program of the night. The 11.1 overnight rating was the second highest-rated Game 4 in the last seven years.

Last night's Game 4 was up 22 percent compared to a 9.1 rating for Game 4 in 2006, when these same two teams met in The Finals. In the last seven years, the game only trailed last year's 11.6 overnight rating for Game 4 between the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics.

In Miami, the game registered a 34.2 metered market rating, up 19 percent over Game 4 in 2006 (28.7 metered market rating). It is the second highest-rated NBA game in Miami (records through 2003). The game generated a 30.5 metered market rating in Dallas.

The Finals on ABC continue with Game 5 Thursday, June 9, at 9 p.m. ET. Mike Breen calls The Finals on ABC with analysts Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson and reporter Doris Burke.
