Ratings: iZombie Finale Dips to Series Low Against NBA Finals Game 3

NBA Finals Ratings

The CW’s iZombie closed Season 1 on Tuesday night with 1.4 million total viewers and a 0.5 demo rating, slipping 22 and 16 percent opposite the well-watched NBA Finals, hitting a series low in the demo.

Versus its premiere (which of course led out of a fresh Flash), iZombie was down some 37 percent.

ABC’s coverage of Game 3 of the aforementioned NBA championship series drew 14.6 million viewers and a 5.8 rating (per fast nationals), down from Game 2’s prelim numbers (18.8 mil/7.1) but up 22 and 18 percent year-over-year.

Fun fact: In Cleveland, Game 3 scored a 49.0 overnight rating, making it the highest-rated NBA game ever on ABC or ESPN in that market.

Elsewhere:

NBC | America’s Got Talent (10.3 mil/2.3) dropped a few eyeballs plus a tenth in the demo, while I Can Do That (5.7 mil/1.6) ticked up in both measures.

FOX | 5th Grader (2.9 mil/0.8) inched up a tenth, while the Hell’s Kitchen finale (3.4 mil/1.0) dipped a tenth week-to-week and was off three tenths from its previous finale.

  1. I don’t get it. I haven’t watched basketball since Michael Jordan’s 3rd retirement. I think it was his 3rd.

    Even though I’m a Warriors fan, I can pictured Matthew Dellavedova of the Cleveland Cavaliers as Stannis Baratheon from Game of Thrones.

    Think CW in major trouble next year

    It’s too bad that more people didn’t watch iZombie’s finale (hopefully they will on DVR) as it was fantastic. I can’t wait for next season to start!

  5. JJ says:

    A 0.5 is on par, maybe even higher, than some of The CW’s other shows’ finales, so I wouldn’t be too sad for iZombie. They’ve been consistent all season even without The Flash lead-in.
