With the final three games of the NBA Finals, ABC made a clean sweep of all main TV ratings measures for the week of June 8-14.  CBS, still mostly in repeats, took the average viewership and adults 25-54 second places, while Fox was second in adults 18-34 and 18-49.

Even with 3 NHL Stanley Cup Finals games, NBC could do no better than third for adults 18-49 and 25-54, and slipped to fourth behind Univision for adults 18-34.

Tiny Network Smackdown Update! Again, not only did MyNetworkTV beat the CW in every ratings demo category (except a tie in adults 18-34), but once again so did tiny Spanish broadcaster Telemundo. It continues to be a long summer for the CW.
