Ratings for June 8th to 14th

Sports was the big winner last week.  NBA finals dominated the top 4 spots in the top 10, while scripted repeats took 5 of the last 6 spots.  That helped ABC win-out over the usually dominating presence of CBS.

The Mentalist and others helped keep CBS in ranks 5 through 10 in the ratings.

The 7th game of the Stanley Cup finals only came in at 17th in the ratings.  This was NBC’s best performing show for the week.  I’m bummed.  I thought there were more hockey fans out there losing their voices with me while the Red Wings lost.

Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance was their number 1 hit, coming in at 11th.  One of Fox’s newest shows, Mental, isn’t doing so well in this summer time frame and that is not good.  It ranked 43rd with 4.7 million viewers.

This week I’ve started including the animated Sunday Fox shows because some of our readers pointed out that these shows are what they like watching.  We here at Screen Rant are always listening to our readers.

As far as cable TV goes, The Closer definitely closed the doors on the other shows while WWE was 2nd in the cable ratings.  Burn Notice was surrounded in its 5th spot by NASCAR telecasts.
