While the Knicks are on the verge of being swept in the first round of the playoffs, they can celebrate one victory. MSG Network scored with the Knicks in the regular season. The household rating averaged a 3.30, the best rating ever. To put it another way, the Knicks on MSG shot-up 81 percent from the previous season.
The high ratings spilled over to key demographics as well. Adults 25 to 54 were up 65 percent, while MSG saw a leap among Men 25 to 54, up 54 percent–both figures were records.
As for the Household mark, it was the best since those ratings were first used by MSG at the start of the 1988-89 season.
The Knicks lost to the Heat last night, putting them in a 0-3 hole. Game 4 is Sunday afternoon at the Garden and on ABC.
