Tnt Claims Biggest Cable Win Ever
Forget about March Madness. It was the madness that came in May with the NBA Playoffs that gave cable network TNT the biggest month in cable history. In a statement, the network said that it averaged 3.6 million total viewers in primetime and more than a million adults 18-34. The playoffs themselves averaged more than 5.5 million viewers, with the Chicago Bulls/Miami Heat series producing a record 10.4 million. Game 5, the channel observed, not only produced the best ratings on cable for the night but the best ratings for all of television, broadcast included.
