NBA All-Star Game Scores in Overnight Ratings
NEW YORK (AP) -- On a night when the NBA All-Star game and Academy Awards went 1-on-1 on television, the basketball showcase produced its second-highest overnight rating since 2005.

TNT said Monday the game in Orlando, Fla., on Sunday produced a 5.4 overnight. This is the highest metered-market overnight since the game seven years ago drew 5.9.

Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder scored 36 points, winning MVP honors and leading the West to a 152-149 victory.

Overnight ratings measure the largest TV markets in the country and are the percentage tuned in among television households. The network said the highest overnights were in Miami-Fort Lauderdale (10.5) and Oklahoma City (10.1).
