Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinal series between the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets was the most watched basketball game ever on ESPN.

The Rockets' 95-80 victory on Thursday drew 7.35 million viewers, topping the 6.6 million that watched Miami beat Detroit in Game 6 of the 2006 Eastern Conference finals.

The game earned a 5.4 national rating and a 16.0 rating in Houston, ESPN's highest local rating for an NBA telecast. ESPN's audience for its six conference semifinal games is up 16 percent from last year.

The rating is the percentage of all homes with televisions tuned into a program, while the share is the percentage of all TVs in use at the time.


i wonder why there was a lot of people interested in watching the game.

They've drawn high ratings throughout the series. Two of the biggest markets, where basketball is the top priority sport.

I don't care for this series (In fact I've been uninterested in Basketball period for a while now) But there was NOTHING on TV...and I didn't feellike watching re-runs, so I watched the 2nd half of the game.
