NBA Finals lead ABC to ratings win

Saturday, June 21, 2014 - Updated: 4:08 AM

NEW YORK (AP) -- The San Antonio Spurs are happy it took only five games to beat the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals, but the same can't be said for ABC.

The series averaged 15.5 million viewers, topped by the 18 million who watched the Spurs' clinching game on Sunday, the Nielsen Co. said.

Overall, the series was down from the 17.7 million average for the 2013 series between the two teams. But last year's series went to the seven-game limit, with a memorable comeback from Miami in the sixth game. This year's five-game series averaged slightly higher than last year's series did through five games, Nielsen said.

For the week of June 9-15, the top 10 shows, their networks and viewerships: NBA Finals: Miami vs. San Antonio, Game 5, ABC, 18 million; NBA Finals: San Antonio vs. Miami, Game 4, ABC, 14.96 million; NBA Finals: San Antonio vs. Miami, Game 3, ABC, 14.78 million; "America's Got Talent" (Tuesday), NBC, 11.54 million; "The Big Bang Theory," CBS, 8.37 million; "NCIS," CBS, 8.07 million; "60 Minutes," CBS, 7.45 million; "Game of Thrones," HBO, 7.09 million; "Night Shift," NBC, 6.7 million; "NCIS: Los Angeles," CBS, 6.58 million.
