The NBA Finals scored their highest ratings yet in the series Wednesday night. Game 3 posted a 13.4 household rating in the overnight metered markets, up from 12.9 for Game 2 and 12.4 for Game 1. The primetime portion of the game came in at 5.9 among adults 18-49 and 15.96 million viewers, pending updates.
Wednesday’s other original shows unsurprisingly fell a bit opposite the NBA game, but none took a very steep drop. “Little Big Shots” (1.1) was even with last week for NBC, and “The Carmichael Show” (0.7) was off 0.2 from its premiere and even with its second episode last week.
At FOX, “Masterchef” (0.9) was off a tenth from last week’s early number (it adjusted up in the finals), while “The F Word’s” 0.8 was off 0.3 from its preliminary rating a week ago and down o.2 from its final number.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||4.9/20||0.8/3||0.7/3||0.6/3||0.2/1|
|Total Viewers (millions)||13.81||2.76||3.94||4.67||0.70|

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
