[via press release from Turner]

TNT

TNT's exclusive coverage of the 2014 NBA Western Conference Finals - the San Antonio Spurs defeating the Oklahoma City Thunder in six games - averaged 6.8 million total viewers and a 4.2 U.S. HH rating, increases of +39% and +35% when compared with last year's Western Conference Finals between the Spurs and Memphis Grizzlies (4.9 million total viewers; 3.1 U.S. HH rating). TNT registered the top audience across all of cable television each game night throughout the six-game series, despite four lopsided outcomes.

This year's NBA Western Conference Finals on TNT generated the top two sports programs of the day across all of television five times throughout the series - each game telecast and the Sports Emmy(R)-winning Inside the NBA studio show. Additionally, TNT's Western Conference Finals coverage netted significant increases across all key male demos, with Men 18-34 and Men 18-49 both growing by +33% and Men 25-54 tallying an increase of +30% over last year.

The network's coverage of the Western Conference Finals Game 6 (Saturday, May 31) - San Antonio's 112-107 overtime victory over Oklahoma City to close out the series - averaged 8.1 million total viewers and a 4.9 U.S. HH rating to rank as basic cable's #1 program for the week and the top sports program of the day across all of television (cable and broadcast). TNT's Game 6 telecast grew +66% and +58% compared with last year's Western Conference Finals. Game 6 between the Spurs/Thunder peaked with 12.1 million total viewers and a 4.9 U.S. HH rating from 11:15-11:30 p.m. (ET).

Following Game 6, TNT's Inside the NBA delivered a 2.7 overnight rating from 11:45 p.m.-12:15 a.m. to net the second highest-rated sports program of the day (trailing only the game itself) across all of television.

For the week, TNT's NBA West Conference Finals coverage accounted for three of basic cable's Top 10 programs among total viewers, adults 18-34, adults 18-49 and adults 25-54. Meanwhile, TNT ranked as basic cable's #1 network in total day delivery of adults 25-54 for the week.
