The NBA Finals maintained a dominant presence in the broadcast charts for the week of June 3.

Once again, a pair of ABC’s NBA Finals broadcasts were the week’s highest-rated broadcasts, with 4.7 and 4.3 ratings in adults 18-49. Game 3 and Game 4 gave ABC the week’s two most-watched broadcasts as well, after raking in 13.35 and 12.79 million viewer audiences, respectively.

Elsewhere, NBC’s Sunday and Thursday night broadcasts of the sixth and fifth games of the Stanley Cup Final came third and fourth in the adults 18-49 demo, while “America’s Got Talent” (9.82 million) came third in total viewers.

In the network standings, the NBA Finals kept ABC at the no. 1 in both adults 18-49 (1.4) and in viewers (5.35 million). NBC (1.2, 4.76 million) came second in both measures, while CBS and FOX tied for third place in the demo with matching 0.5 averages.

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