Preliminary Ratings: Thursday 06/16/2016

ABC dominated the Thursday night ratings, as game six of the NBA Finals pulls in the best overnight ratings of the series. the 16.8 million viewers should translate to over 20 million when the finals are released this evening.

CBS was a very distant second place, with an all encore line up, beating both FOX and NBC.

FOX was all-original, with BONES leading into the season premiere of the reality series, HOME FREE, which collected 2.3 million viewers and a 0.6 rating in Adults 18-49. That is down from last year's series premiere, by 700,000 viewers and and 33% in the demo.

NBC gave us back-to-back episodes of the season premiere of AQUARIUS, from 9 to 11 PM. The summer drama averaged less than three million viewers and just a 0.5 rating in Adults 18-49, placing 4th in the 9 pM hour and last at 10 PM. I doubt we'll see a third season of the series, in 2017.
