Ratings: SYTYCD and Love Bites Drop; NBA Finals Score Another Big W

ABC’s coverage of the NBA Finals continues to put up big numbers. Game 5 on Thursday night netted 15.4 million total viewers while averaging a 6.3 demo rating from 9 to 11 pm. That’s an increase of 15 percent versus Game 4’s tallies, and up 17 percent from last season’s Game 5 face-off.

Elsewhere on Thursday:

* So You Think You Can Dance‘s two-hour reveal of the Top 20 fell shy of 7 million total viewers and averaged a 2.4 rating, down 10 and 17 percent from a week ago.

    As much as I’ve enjoyed the work of several of the actors on Love Bites in other times and places, the two episodes so far have felt poorly written and not terribly original or well thought out. I can see why they didn’t bother to place this on the schedule until it was time to burn off bad shows during the summer season.

    Love Bites is truly awful… those early previews were such a cheat…

    The reason why Loves Bites is not as good as it would of, was because one of the main girls had to go to my boys and then Becki got preggo’s and so they had to shoot the whole show over again. So what they had last fall was a better loves bites that would have been a mash hit but then they had to shoot again and this time around it wasnt as good, I for one still love Loves Bites, I thought last night was the funniest one yet to come.

      I’m pretty sure it is too, so why is she here? Her photo has nothing to do with the little news snippets…

    Well, it’s the summer and there isn’t new crap on to watch. With The Killing and Game of Thrones ending soon, I’ll take what I can get.
