So You Think You Can Dance and Love Bites were both adjusted up one tenth of an adults 18-49 ratings point from the preliminary numbers.

Game 5 of the NBA Finals between Miami and Dallas ended up with a 7.4 adults 18-49 rating, up 3% vs. season’s game 5. I didn’t check last year’s game 5 viewership, but last night’s came in at 18.32 million.

There may have been adults 18-49 adjustments to one of the many repeats, but I didn’t check. Do so at your leisure!
