Spotted Ratings, Thursday 6/6/13


WHAT MATTERS:
  • Further fueling the "San Antonio Spurs are Nielsen kryptonite" narrative, game one of the NBA Finals disappointed, down 17% year-to-year. It was a return to about the same ratings level as for the Lakers' appearances in the late aughts.
  • Despite a stronger ABC, all competing broadcast originals were within a tick week-to-week, and most were up.
  • Undeterred by the NBA, cablers USA and TNT launched their summer Thursday lineups. USA's Burn Notice (1.2) was solid, matching last year's premiere, but newbie Graceland (0.8) didn't show much on premiere night. TNT nearly equaled the Graceland demo with new unscripted offering The Hero (0.7).

USA has to be disappointed with Graceland. They've been flogging that show for months and months.

Think of how much worse it would have been for ABC if the Pacers faced the Spurs again. At least Miami is a large media market with a marquee player in LeBron James.

Meanwhile, Graceland flopped. Perhaps USA is picking the right time to get into the sitcom game as it hasn't had a splashy drama since Covert Affairs and Suits.

Doesn't it speak to how weak the NBA Finals are that it's so dependent on match-ups? The same goes for the NHL Finals, where they probably hope no Canadian teams make it, or the World Series, which doesn't do well when the Yanks or Sawx aren't a part.
