All together now: we suck!

16Jun07

People don’t care about Chris Pronger or Tim Duncan, apparently. From the AP:

The NBA finals were a television bust. San Antonio’s four-game sweep of Cleveland finished with a record-low 6.2 television rating and 11 share on ABC, Nielsen Media Research said Friday.

That was down 27 percent from the 8.5/15 for Miami’s six-game victory over Dallas last year and 5 percent under the previous low, a 6.5/12 for San Antonio’s six-game win over New Jersey in 2003. The NBA finals averaged 9.3 million viewers this year.

San Antonio’s series-winning 83-82 victory on Thursday night got a 6.5/12, down 17 percent from the 7.8/14 for Game 4 last year.

The NHL Stanley Cup finals also hit a record low this year, with NBC averaging a 1.6/3 for the final three games of Anaheim’s five-game victory over Ottawa. The first two games were televised on the cable network Versus.

So I guess Gary Bettman and David Stern have something to discuss over morning coffee, huh?
