A Bad Week For Lebron Is Great For Abc

ABC's telecasts of the NBA finals between the Dallas Mavericks and the Miami Heat dominated the primetime ratings for the second week in a row among total viewers and those 18-49. Along with Monday's The Bachelorette, the telecasts easily gave ABC the No. 1 spot on the Nielsen top ten list. But NBC's talent shows, The Voice and America's Got Talent also drew solid numbers. And two editions of yet another talent contest, Fox's So You Think You Can Dance also performed strongly among adults 18-49. Among the nightly newscasts, the Anthony Wiener scandal failed to increase viewership. NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams remained in the lead with 8.2 million viewers, followed by ABC World News with Diane Sawyer with 7.1 million viewers. The debuting CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley remained in third place with 5.7 million. For the week, ABC led with a 5.5 average rating and a 10 share. CBS placed second with a 4.2/7. NBC came in third with a 3.5/6, while Fox trailed with a 2.7/5.
