Thunder Fever Produces Huge TV Rating

The Oklahoma City Thunder's thrilling three-overtimes 133-123 victory over the Memphis
Grizzlies Monday night had TV receivers going well into the wee hours, Nielsen Company ratings show.

The game was so popular in the Oklahoma City market that one-fifth of all homes with televisions were tuned in at 12:30 a.m. for a 19.2 rating, Nielsen found.

With the play-off series tied at 2-2, the Thunder returns to Loud City (PKA The Ford Center) tonight in an 8:30 tip-off that will be standing room only...and another huge night for Thunder television ratings on TNT, Cox Channel 31.
