nba finals 2014 game 3 ratings TV ratings: 'America's Got Talent' and 'The Night Shift' hold up vs. NBA Finals on TuesdayFast National ratings for Tuesday, June 10, 2014

ABC scored another ratings win Tuesday night with Game 3 of the NBA Finals, whose numbers were pretty consistent with the first two contests.

NBC was also pretty strong Tuesday: “America’s Got Talent” slipped a little among adults 18-49 but was up in viewers, while “The Night Shift” held steady. Elsewhere, The CW’s “Famous in 12” ticked up slightly but still drew a rather small audience.

ABC delivered 10.1 million viewers and a 6.3 rating/11 share in households in primetime, pending updates for its live NBA broadcast. NBC (9.95 million, 6.0/10) came in second, and CBS (6.5 million, 4.4/8) finished third. Neither FOX (1.1 million, 0.8/1) nor The CW (678,000, 0.4/1) made much of an impression.

ABC posted a 4.0 rating among adults 18-49, easily beating NBC’s 2.2. None of the other networks made it above a 1.0 — CBS averaged 0.8, FOX 0.4 and The CW 0.3.
