Ratings: Opposite NBA Finals Game 5, Golan and American Odyssey Tick Up

NBA Finals Ratings

ABC’s coverage of the NBA Finals on Sunday night averaged 20.5 million total viewers and a 7.5 demo rating (per finals), ticking up in audience versus Game 4 and up 15 and 10 percent from last year’s deciding Game 5.

Going up against hoops (as well as HBO’s Game of Thrones finale), NBC’s penultimate A.D. (4 mil/0.7) was steady. At 10 pm, American Odyssey (2.4 mil/0.5) ticked up a tenth.

Broadcast TV’s only other fresh scripted fare, Fox’s Golan the Insatiable (1.4 mil/0.6), rose 16 percent and a tenth.

Cable ratings (such as for Thrones), as always and forever come in much, much later, and as merited are reported under separate cover.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!
