The Sixers are a hot on the court — 15-6, just a half-game behind the Celtics who lead the Atlantic Division.

And they’re doing great in the TV ratings world.

Through their first 21 games, the Sixers are on pace to post their highest-rated season eve, according to  NBC Sports Philadelphia.

Led by interest in Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, Sixers’ games are averaging a 3.7 household rating share (about 102,000 households in the Philadelphia market), up 19 percent from last season.
