Monday Final Nationals: Cavaliers-Warriors NBA Finals Game 5 Delivers Highest-Rated ABC Monday Among Adults 18-49 in Six Years

NBC's 'Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge' Decent While CBS's 'Braindead' Sputters in Debut

Featuring Game 5 of the “2016 NBA Finals” (Golden State-Cleveland), ABC posted a big victory on Monday, leading its combined competition (CBS, NBC, Fox and CW) in total viewers (+ 4 percent – 14.6 million vs. 14.1 million) and adults 18-49 (+ 58 percent – 5.2/18 vs. 3.3/11). It was the network’s fifth consecutive evening this year to top its combined competition in adults 18-49 with NBA Finals coverage. The Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Golden State Warriors by 15 points (112-97), bringing the series up to a 3-2 Warriors advantage.

In adults 18-49, ABC scored its highest-rated Monday in over 6 years – since March 22, 2010.

On average through 5 games, the 2016 NBA Finals is attracting its 2nd largest ever 5-game average
on ABC (18.1 million), behind only the highly competitive 2015 series between the same two teams.

Airing around the NBA Finals in various time periods across the country, “Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night” drew its biggest audience ever for a Game Night 5 (4.6 million). Through its first 5 broadcasts of 2016, “Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night” is up 8 percent over last year (4.1 million vs. 3.8 million) to deliver its most watched ever 5-night average.

Opposite the NBA Finals in the 10 p.m. hour, the NBC premiere of “Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge” delivered modest demo figures but the series premiere of the CBS dark comedy “Braindead” wasn’t as fortunate.
