2011-12 Regular-Season Games Outpacing Last Season's Viewership

NBA TV continues to set record ratings just over a month into the 2011-12 regular season. Through the first 34 games of the regular season, NBA TV is averaging 391,000 total viewers and 306,000 total households, up 74% and 78% respectively, compared to the same time last year. In addition, NBA TV has also shown the largest universe growth of any cable network since the start of the year with an increase of over 3.3 million households.

To date, the 2011-12 regular season has delivered three of the top five most-watched games ever on the network. The following are NBA TV's Top 5 most-watched games in total viewers (newly charted games in bold):
