Monday Final Nationals: ‘Mike & Molly’ Jumps by Double-Digit Percent from Prior Week for CBS

Significant Growth for Melissa McCarthy-Billy Gardell Sitcom as it Heads into Next Week's Series Finale

ABC, NBC and TNT shared prime time victory for the third straight Monday night. ABC was the night’s most-watched network with 9.82 million total viewers, and NBC led in adults 18-49 (1.9 rating/6 share) and adults 25-54 (2.6/7).

CBS sitcom “Mike & Molly” grew strong as it nears its finish on the air, increasing by a double-digit percentage in all measures from its episodes in their respective time slots of the previous week. The 8:30 p.m. episode had a season-best delivery in adults 25-54 and matched a season-high among adults 18-49.

TNT, with primarily Game 4 of the Toronto Raptors-Miami Heat series in prime time, was tops among adults 18-34 (1.5 rating).

Despite a start time past 10:39 p.m. Eastern, Game 4 of the “NBA Western Conference Semifinals: Golden State Warriors @ Portland Trail Blazers” was the first NBA playoff game on cable this spring to exceed 6 million viewers (6.158 million) and it was the network’s most-watched playoff game since Game 4 of the 2015 Eastern Conference Final between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Atlanta Hawks. The game drew a local 23.6 rating in the San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose market; a 20.1 rating in Portland, Oregon (Source). The game featured the return of Golden State point guard and 2-time NBA MVP Steph Curry who scored an all-time record of 17 overtime points for the Warriors to propel them to a 132-125 win.

Overall, TNT’s doubleheader (Miami/Toronto and Golden State/Portland) averaged 5.1 million total viewers, a gain of 26 percent vs. last year’s comparable coverage.
