Monday Final Ratings: Warriors-Rockets on TNT Draws Best Start to an NBA Western Conference Finals Series in 16 Years

TNT’s exclusive coverage of the 2018 NBA Western Conference Finals Game 1 – the Golden State Warriors vs. Houston Rockets – averaged 8.8 million total viewers on Monday, May 14 to deliver the network’s most-watched WCF Game 1 of all time. The telecast is the most-viewed WCF Game 1 across any network since Lakers/Kings on NBC in 2002.
The network’s Warriors/Rockets telecast – peaking with an average of 10 million viewers from 10:45-11 p.m. ET – is up 38 percent over the 2017 NBA Eastern Conference Finals Game 1 (Cleveland/Boston, 6.4 million viewers; also on TNT) and 9 percent when compared with last year’s WCF Game 1 (Warriors/Spurs, 8.1 million viewers).
Monday night’s WCF Game 1 telecast was the #1 program of the night across all of television (cable and broadcast) and, including the “Inside the NBA” post-game show (3.0 overnight rating), delivered the top two programs of the night across all of cable television, based on metered markets.
TNT’s Warriors/Rockets telecast has generated double-digit increases across all core demos, including a 25 percent increase in adults 18-34 and 21 percent in males 18-34 vs. the 2017 NBA ECF Game 1 on TNT. Monday night’s WCF Game 1 is also up approximately 20 percent or higher over last year’s WCF Game 1.
Top local markets for Monday night’s Rockets/Warriors telecast – San Francisco (21.5 rating), Houston (14.7), New Orleans (11.6), Sacramento (10.8) and Birmingham (9.2).
