NBC:  NBCUniversal wants everyone to know that JURASSIC WORLD is opening Friday, and a 1.2 rating for a run of the 22-year old JURASSIC PARK was an effective way of furthering that.  (PARK will also be running on the company’s cable networks prior to the new release.) 

ABC:  After 0.8 for a SHARK TANK rerun, WHAT WOULD YOU DO fell 0.3 to 1.0, but 20/20 gained 0.4 to 1.4.

CW:  Both the new and rerun episodes of WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY were at 0.4, which was down 0.1 for the new half-hour.  THE MESSENGERS rose 0.1 to 0.3.

CBS:  Reruns, topped by 0.7 for BLUE BLOODS.

FOX:  Reruns at twin 0.5s.

NBC has a STANLEY CUP FINALS game tonight and FOX airs MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL, while the other networks program the usual Saturday mix of reruns and cheap reality shows.  On cable, Starz features the season premiere of POWER.  Sunday brings the usual mismatch between the NBA FINALS on ABC and the TONY AWARDS on CBS, while NBC is still running fresh episodes of A.D.: THE BIBLE CONTINUES and AMERICAN ODYSSEY.

DEMOGRAPHIC DETAIL: For each broadcast program (or hour segment), the chart below displays preliminary key advertiser demographics (adult 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54 ratings), audience skews (women 18-49, men 18-49 and adults 50+ shares) and total viewership (thousands of people over the age of 2).
