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. 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). Associated Press
