Demo Profile 2015 MON.15 Jun

NBC:  The final game of the STANLEY CUP FINALS had a preliminary 2.6 rating, up 1.1 from Saturday’s preliminary number.

ABC:  THE BACHELORETTE stayed at 1.8, while THE WHISPERS lost 0.1 to 0.9.

FOX:  SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE gained 0.1 to 1.3.

CBS:  Reruns, topped by 1.1 for both 2 BROKE GIRLS and MIKE & MOLLY.

CW:  Reruns at twin 0.4s (although those may slip due to baseball preemption in NY).

Tonight it’s the NBA’s turn, with a Game 6 that will likely overwhelm the other networks, including FOX’s coverage of the WOMENS WORLD CUP, which will feature the US vs Nigeria game in primetime.  NBC airs its regular summer line-up.  It’s a busy night on cable, where TNT launches its summer Tuesdays with the return of RIZZOLI & ISLES and the launch of PROOF; FX has the season premiere of TYRANT; and MTV presents the season finale of FINDING CARTER.

COMPARISONS TO SIMILAR NIGHTS: Preliminary adult 18-49 ratings versus the same night last year and same night last week.
