Wednesday Final Nationals: Golden State Warriors Continue to be Ratings Gold for the NBA and TNT

CBS and Fox again shared top honors on Wednesday night. CBS bested in total viewers (7.17 million), Fox led in all key demographics: adults 18-49 (2.4 rating/9 share), adults 18-34 (2.0/9), and adults 25-54 (2.9/8).

The Golden State Warriors impress yet again in the “2016 NBA Playoffs” as their series-clinching Game 5 win over the Portland Trail Blazers to advance to the Western Conference Finals (which will exclusively air on TNT) drew over 6 million viewers (6.251 million, to be exact). This telecast, along with Monday’s Game 4 contest of Golden State-Portland, have been the only playoff games to-date to surpass 6 million this spring on a cable network.

  1. “…..to-date to surpass 6 million this spring” you forgot to add “on cable”, Warriors/Rockets G5 and G1 of this series had 7.2M/6.7M respectively on ABC.
