It was a strong night in the Monday primetime ratings for ABC, as the NBA Finals recorded their highest-rated game of the year so far.
Pending updates, the network’s broadcast of the Game 6 of the NBA Finals easily won the night with a 5.2 average rating among adults 18-49 and 14.34 million viewers. That is the highest preliminary rating of any of ABC’s NBA Finals broadcasts this year by a wide margin, and is higher than any of the previous games’ final ratings as well.
Although both will likely adjust down in the finals later today, ABC’s pre-game “Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night” (2.7) and “NBA Countdown” (2.9) specials posted similarly high ratings.
Elsewhere, FOX’s “Beat Shazam” ticked back down from its previous 0.7 to a 0.6. “So You Think You Can Dance” grabbed a 0.6 as well, also down one-tenth from its season premiere’s 0.7 last week.
On NBC, an “American Ninja Warrior” rerun scored a 0.6, leading into a new “Dateline” (0.6) at 10 p.m. Meanwhile, CBS and the CW both took Monday off, airing only reruns throughout the night.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||4.4/20||0.6/3||0.6/3||0.4/2||0.1/1|

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.
