Thanks to the concluding games of this year’s NBA Finals, ABC scored another easy victory over the other networks in the broadcast charts.

The network’s broadcasts of the fifth and sixth games between the Toronto Raptors and the Golden State Warriors were the week’s highest-rated broadcasts, scoring 6.7 and 6.6 ratings, respectively, in the adults 18-49 demo. They were the week’s most-watched broadcasts as well, after raking in 18.76 million and 18.60 million viewer audiences.

NBC’s broadcast of Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final gave the network the no. 3 spot in the 18-49 demo with a 2.7, while “America’s Got Talent” (9.46 million) came third in total viewers. “Got Talent” (1.5) was also the week’s highest-rated, non-sports broadcast.

In the network standings, ABC (1.7, 6.06 million) predictably won the week in both measures. NBC (0.9, 4.06 million) came second, followed by FOX (0.8, 3.92 million) in third place.

Here are the network standings for last week and the season.
