Game 2 of the NBA Finals lapped the rest of the TV field Sunday night, and its preliminary ratings are in line with the same night last year.
The Golden State Warriors’ 19-point win over the Cleveland Cavaliers drew a 12.7 household rating in metered markets, on par with the 12.8 for last year’s Game 2. The game’s fast national numbers (14.28 million viewers, 5.2 rating in adults 18-49) are off a bit from last year’s 15.46 million and 5.7, pending updates.
The NBC debut of “Jurassic World” put up decent numbers opposite the NBA, scoring a 0.9 in the 18-49 demographic. “Instinct” (0.5) rose a tenth of a point vs. last week on CBS.

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.
