LeBron James’ Debut In Lakers Season Opener Delivers Significant TV Ratings On TNT
LeBron James, Los Angeles Lakers
Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

Since signing a four-year contract with the Los Angeles Lakers in free agency, there have been several checkpoints of sorts for LeBron James. The first was a public appearance, when James donned Lakers shorts to watch his new teammates play in the Las Vegas Summer League.

Then there was James’ first remarks after signing the deal, which came in a video he released through his Uninterrupted network. James’ initial press conference with team came on Media Day, then there was the first preseason game in San Diego that had added buzz.

While he had already taken the court in a Lakers uniform, seeing James and the team do so to open the season Thursday night in a season opener against the Portland Trail Blazers brought about a whole new level of excitement and anticipation.

And if there was any question as to the level of interest that came with it, TV ratings for the exclusive TNT broadcast further tell the story. The network announced James’ debut with the Lakers garnered a 2.6 household rating.

That’s a 63 percent increase from a comparable game (Lakers-Clippers) that TNT televised last season. Additionally, the Lakers-Trail Blazers matchup peaked with a 2.9 HH rating from 8-8:15 p.m. PT.

That’s TNT’s highest rating for an NBA game in the Los Angeles market since garnering a peak of a 6.99 HH rating in 2014.

Thursday was the first of 43 nationally-televised games for James and the Lakers this season, which is most in the NBA.

  • This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
