Ratings: Game 1 of NBA Finals Shoots and Scores for ABC

Thursday's ratings recap:

* 8 pm/ET

ABC's coverage of Game 1 of the NBA Finals - which was kicked off by a Jimmy Kimmel special - topped every hour and was the night's most watched program, averaging 9.4 million viewers from 8 to 11 pm.

In the 8 o'clock hour, I'm a Celebrity placed fourth (behind repeats of Bones and CBS comedies) with 5.18 mil. That is, however, an 8 percent gain from the night prior. Speidi wants to take credit for the bump, I am sure.

* 9 pm

So You Think You Can Dance's reveal of the Top 20 bested a CSI repeat by drawing 8.2 mil, but dipped 10 percent week-to-week. The premiere of NBC's The Listener placed fourth with 5.25 mil.

* 10 pm

A second episode of The Listener drew 5.34 mil, lagging far behind basketball and a The Mentalist repeat.
