Cable Live +3 ratings, May 23-29: ‘Game of Thrones’ makes up for low same-day numbers

game-of-thrones-ratings-may-29-16

“Game of Thrones” had a season-low 3.2 same-day rating in adults 18-49 over Memorial Day weekend, but delayed viewing brought it to its usual level.

The HBO show had its biggest three-day gain of the season (1.7 points) to rise to a 4.9, in line with its three-day performance for the rest of the season. That pushed it ahead of TNT’s NBA playoff coverage to the No. 1 spot in 18-49, though Games 5 and 6 of the NBA Western Conference Finals still had the edge in viewers.
