Projected weekly network ratings in prime time (based on four days of official nationals and three days of fast nationals).  ABC wins another week, thanks to three NBA Finals games on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.  ABC is down 11% over the same week last year, however, which also featured three NBA Finals games.  NBC continues to show gains over last year, although that will end after the week starting tonight (as The Voice finally draws to a close).

With three weeks of summer ratings in the books, ABC and NBC continue to be ahead of last year’s pace, while FOX and CBS are floundering (with little help on the horizon).
