Los Angeles Lakers’ NBA Finals Win on ABC Crushed by ‘Sunday Night Football’ in Early Ratings
ABC's broadcast of the Los Angeles Lakers' victory over the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the 2020 NBA Finals wasn't a game for "Sunday Night Football" on NBC, according to the earliest available Nielsen numbers.
Last night, the Lakers' 106-93 loss to the Heat was 57% lower than the 2019 NBA Final Grand Final when the Toronto Raptors defeated the Golden State Warriors. Of course, Game 6, which aired in June, wasn't against the NFL.
Due to the nature of live television, the following data for ABC, NBC and CBS should be viewed as being significantly adjusted when the final numbers are available later on Monday.
