Fast National ratings for Thursday, June 17, 2010
Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals wasn't especially pretty on the court, but the Los Angeles Lakers' victory in a tight game sure looks nice in the ratings.
ABC posted a huge win Thursday night thanks to its coverage of the Finals, averaging 18.7 million viewers and a 10.6 rating/19 share among households in primetime (those numbers will change some when the live broadcast is figured in). It led the night by more than 10 million viewers, with CBS (7.9 million, 5.2/9) a distant second. FOX (5.1 million, 3.2/6) came in third. Neither NBC (2.2 million, 1.5/3) nor The CW (1.3 million, 0.8/1) were any kind of factor.
ABC's 7.5 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic beat the combined total of the other four networks. FOX took second in the demo at 1.9, followed by CBS, 1.4; NBC, 0.8; and The CW, 0.5.
