Last night, the Los Angeles Lakers won their 17th championship in their franchises history as LeBron poured in a triple-double to not only win his fourth title, but win his fourth NBA Finals MVP.
Lakers beating the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on ABC delivered a 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic while 5.60 million viewers watched the game.
It had competition from NBC’s Sunday Night Football as the Vikings-Seahawks on NBC drew an audience of 11.4 million total viewers for a week 5 regular season game. The game averaged a 3.2 rating among adults 18-49, per Nielsen.
The NFL continues to dominate in the ratings, despite an outcry on social media of players kneeling during the National Anthem.
