The viral Michael Jordan documentary “The Last Dance” broke ESPN rating records when it aired on Sunday. Reports from ESPN say “The Last Dance” had 6.3 million viewers watch the first episode, while 5.8 million people watched the second episode.
Bo Jackson’s 30 for 30 episode “You Don’t Know Bo” held the previous record at 3.6 million viewers in 2012, according to ESPN. “The Last Dance” surpassed that number by around 2.7 million people. Some people are attributing it to the fact that more people are at home, and not working because of the coronavirus COVID-19.
Whatever the case maybe, this is an impressive feat. Years after his retirement from basketball Michael Jordan is still ruling the television screens, but this time with a “The Last Dance” documentary breaking ESPN ratings records.
