Overnight ratings for NBA All-Star game up 12% vs. last year


Last night’s NBA All-Star game drew a 5.5 household rating – that’s up 12% over last year’s overnight rating. Last year’s game went head-to-head against the Winter Olympics, but this year’s game was simulcast on TBS. The 5.5 rating is a combined rating for TNT and TBS.

Final national household rating and viewership should be released sometime this afternoon.

Here are the All-Star game overnight household ratings going back to 2009:

2013 5.9
2012 5.4

Overnight household rating = the live+same day DVR overnight metered-market household rating from the top 56 Nielsen television markets. The 56 markets (out of 210 total) account for about 70% of the US TV-viewing population. The  overnight household rating is  the percentage of the households that were tuned-in in those markets. The share is the percentage of the households that were watching TV at the time.
