The concluding game of this year’s NBA Finals lifted ABC up to yet another primetime ratings win.
ABC’s Thursday night broadcast of Game 6 between the Toronto Raptors and the Golden State Warriors averaged a 4.9 rating among adults 18-49, with 13.92 million viewers. That gives it the second-highest preliminary rating of any of this year’s NBA Finals games, coming just short of Game 5’s initial 5.2 rating (which later adjusted up to a 6.5 final rating with 18.22 million viewers).
ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night” (2.6) and “NBA Countdown” (3.2) pre-game specials rounded out the night for the network.
Elsewhere, it was a steady night for CBS, as both “Life in Pieces” (0.6) and “Elementary” (0.5) matched their ratings from a week ago. The CW’s “iZombie” (0.2) and “In the Dark” (0.1) also stayed even week-to-week.
FOX’s coverage of the first round of the U.S. Open Golf Championship raked in a 0.5 average rating with 2.22 million viewers. Meanwhile, the final 2 episodes of NBC’s “A.P. Bio” scored 0.4 and 0.3 ratings, respectively, leading into the series finale of “Abby’s,” which grabbed a 0.3 at 9:30 p.m. Both shows performed on par with their previous episodes this season.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||4.2/19||0.6/3||0.5/3||0.3/2||0.2/1|
|Total Viewers (millions)||12.49||4.49||2.22||1.76||0.69|

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.
