Fast Demo 2016 Jun WED.08

ABC:  The preliminary 5.2 for the NBA FINALS was down 0.3 from Sunday’s game, but now that Cleveland has won a game and the series is competitive, those numbers may start climbing.  The game still, of course, was the night’s easy winner.

NBC:  AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR shed 0.1 to 1.6, and THE NIGHT SHIFT fell 0.2 to 0.9.

FOX:  MASTERCHEF was steady at 1.2, and WAYWARD PINES lost 0.1 to 0.7.

CBS:  Reruns at 0.6-0.7.

CW:  Reruns at twin 0.2s.

NBC airs a STANLEY CUP FINALS game tonight, and FOX has the finale of AMERICAN GRIT.

COMPARISONS TO SIMILAR NIGHTS: Preliminary adult 18-49 ratings versus the same night last year and same night last week.
