NBA > Jon & Kate

Monday’s Game 4 of the Nuggets-Lakers series drew 9.88 million viewers, establishing highs for any basketball game ever on ESPN, any NBA game ever on cable and any cable program this year. Though I don’t necessarily root for ratings, the fact that a basketball game apparently out-rated the season debut of TLC’s highly publicized Jon & Kate Plus 8 (reported to get 9.8 million viewers) is cause for celebration. Maybe NBA players are just as self-absorbed as the reality show couple who have turned into tabloid fodder, but at least we usually only see the players on TV doing what they do best.
