With 2 NBA Finals Games, ABC Sweeps Weekly Adult Demos
On the backs of the first two games of the NBA Finals, ABC made a clean sweep of the main adult demo TV ratings groups for the first time in recent memory. Still, CBS, mostly in repeats, took the average viewership win, but by a smaller margin than last week.
With 2 NHL Stanley Cup Finals games, NBC edged Fox for #2 in adults 18-49 and CBS for #2 in adults 25-54, while Fox was #2 for adults 18-34.
