Like the overall top 20, the NBA finals ruled the roost. More interesting to me was that two (TWO!) NHL Stanley Cup Finals games made the top ten. Sure, it was up against weaker summer fare, but still, that's really great progress for the NHL from where it was one year ago. Also, though not on the list below, Univision's Al Diablo Con Guapos was the 25th most viewed show by 18-49 year olds last week.
