New stars, marketing drive NBA

13 February 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

NEW YORK -- Invoking the names of LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony -- the NBA's hottest pair of rookie sensations since Magic Johnson and Larry Bird in 1979 -- might be too simplistic an answer for pro basketball's ratings surge this season, but they represent the newfound energy that has permeated the league and the two cable networks that have benefited from the boon. As the league's All-Star Weekend approaches, viewership at ESPN and TNT is up considerably compared with last season -- 8% on ESPN through 38 games and 36% on TNT after 30 telecasts, according to Nielsen Media Research. Moreover, ratings for the elusive 18-34 male demographic have jumped 31% on TNT along with a 28% jump among 18-49, though ESPN is relatively flat in the latter demo. All of this comes months after a disastrous 2003 Finals left the NBA with the image of a troubled league that had crippled itself with a new TV contract, shifting on the broadcast side to ABC after years with NBC, that relied on cable network carriage for most of its games. »
