The more games the NBA FINALS play, the higher the ratings get. Tuesday nights game drew an impressive 20.6 million viewers and a solid 8.5 rating in Adults 18-49. Since last year's Finals only went 5 games, there is not a year to year comparison, but it is up about 2 million viewers and a full ratings point above the decisive game five of the 2012 NBA FINALS.
THE VOICE did end the spring season on a strong note. With its best ratings since March, the finale drew 16.6 million viewers and a 4.4 demo rating. That is up nearly 3 million viewers and 19% in the demo, from the Monday night performance finale.
CBS decided that two episodes were enough of BROOKLYN DA and moved to the death night of Saturdays. In its place will be the new fall occupant, PERSON OF INTEREST. The encore airing of POI increased viewership in the time slot by 1.8 million viewers and 50% in the demo ratings.
