Black TV Ratings for Week of June 3 - 9
First games of the NBA Finals each draws more than five million black viewers

(June 12, 2013) The face off between the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals didn't set any viewing records among Black basketball viewers. In fact, the first and second games attracted nearly a half million fewer viewers less this year than the 2012 Finals between the Heat and the Oklahoma Thunder.

The lower summer viewership continued. With the exception of America's Got Talent, no program not related to basketball could pull in at least a million Black viewers.

Basketball programming gave ABC a rare lead over CBS as the week's most watched network. ABC posted 17.3 million for its eight shows on the Top 25. CBS was second with just 6.2 million for its eight shows. NBC logged 5.2 million for six programs.

The total number of black viewers for the Top 25, according to Nielsen, was up 75 percent, thanks to the NBA to 31.2 million.
