The 2021 NBA All-Star Game was down 24 percent in ratings and 18 percent in viewership from 2020, making it the lowest rated and least-watched edition of the game.

But the All-Star Game ranks as the highest rated NBA telecast of the season and ranks as the most-watched non-football sportscast since the World Series.

The Finals, by comparison, were down 49 percent year-over-year. 

The All-Star Game was the highest rated telecast of the night for adults between 18 and 34, even beating Oprah Winfrey's interview of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on CBS.
