3 FOR 3: NBC SPORTS PHILADELPHIA DELIVERS THREE BEST 76ERS OVERNIGHT RATINGS OF SEASON WITH LAST THREE TELECASTS
Friday’s Game Delivers Third-Highest Streamed Game on Record with 1.8 Million Minutes
PHILADELPHIA – November 19, 2018 – NBC Sports Philadelphia in its last three 76ers telecasts has delivered the network’s three highest overnight ratings of the season (15 games). The streak coincides with last week’s trade for Jimmy Butler, who made a key block and hit the game-winning, buzzer-beating three-pointer in overtime to beat the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday night.
For Friday night’s game, in which the 76ers hosted the Jazz, NBC Sports Philadelphia scored the second-highest overnight rating of the season with a 4.7 HH rating, and delivered 1.8 million minutes streamed, making it the third-highest streamed Sixers regular season game ever.
Then, for Saturday night’s overtime thriller in Charlotte, the network posted a 4.0 HH rating, making it the third-highest of the season. Season to date, the Sixers are averaging a 3.1 HH rating, up 9 percent over last season’s start.
Both Friday and Saturday’s Sixers Postgame Live averaged a 1.9 HH rating, which were the highest-rated Sixers Postgame programs of the season.
The 76ers face the Phoenix Suns tonight at 7 p.m. on NBC Sports Philadelphia, coverage begins at 6:30 p.m. with Sixers Pregame Live. Fans can download the MyTeams by NBC Sports app for all their Sixers coverage, including live streams of all Sixers games, and pre- and postgame programs.
