Black Cable TV Ratings for Week of May 14 - 20
Audiences way down for NBA Playoffs second round without Chicago  Bulls

(May 24, 2012) The NBA Playoffs semi final round didn't top the viewing records of last year's telecasts. Without the Chicago Bulls in the second round, the league lost the interest of millions of Black households compared to 2011.

During this period last year, the Bulls and Miami Heat were the No.1 cable show with 4.3 million black viewers. The most watched match-up last week was between the L.A. Lakers and the Oklahoma City Thunder which drew 2.8 million.

TNT easily won the most watched Top 25 cable network battle with 17.8 million watching 10 NBA games. ESPN followed with 7.7 million for four games. BET was third with 3.9 million for three of its shows.

The total number of viewers watching the Top 25 shows in black households, according to Nielsen, was up 12 percent to 38 million.
