Monday night provided a referendum for local basketball popularity: No. 8 OSU at No. 23 OU in Bedlam vs. a Thunder game. Which attracted more TV viewers in Oklahoma City? The Thunder in a landslide. Fox Sports Oklahoma's Thunder telecast at 7 p.m. got an 11.1 rating (percent of TV households) vs. 7.8 for ESPN's Bedlam telecast, which started at 8 p.m. The Thunder, which is well on its way to repeating as the NBA's local TV ratings champion, swept the top five spots for the week, topped by a combined 13.8 for the San Antonio game Wednesday night. NBC's Pro Bowl telecast got a 6.4 on KFOR-4, same as last year.
