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