TV Ratings Top 25: NBA Finals On Top, Lie To Me Sole Scripted Original

Categories: '

Written By

June 22nd, 2010


Big ratings for games 6 and 7 of the NBA Finals placed them at the top of the adults 18-49 ratings and total viewership ranks for the week, and their pre-games were both in the top 11.  Lie To Me was the only original English language scripted show to place in the top 25 for adults 18-49, while Flashpoint also made it into the average viewership top 25. So much for the "seriousness" of broadcast's scripted summer.

NOTE: Weekly cable ratings including ESPN ratings for the World Cup matches are coming soon.

Seven (scripted) Univision shows in the adults 18-49 top 25 this week. Now that the NBA Finals are over, could they go over 10 for the current week?
