1 thing I took away from this is nobody likes to watch the Spurs.

Looks like they are about the average compared to the last decade.

How do they get this ratings anyways, it doesn't account for people that go to the sports bar or watch at a friend's place. I expected the Sunday's rating to go down because most people in the South don't stay home to watch the games.

TV are now a little bit skewed because DVR isn't taken into account in initial ratings.

Honestly probably because it was on Sunday and either people are out doing stuff or too many other shows on TV. My only guess though as it seemed in the past that more people watched games on Sunday than any other day during the week.

I think it's the way ABC promotes the Finals. They're just not that good at it. We need the NBA on NBC back guys. They knew how to promote the NBA.

Pretty lame game time also, games that have high ratings on Sunday are usually played during the day. My bro missed the game because he was traveling out for work and some people are probably going back home after vacation......I think the time also explains the low ratings.

Another stupid thread by JB
Why are you comparing tv ratings from 15 years ago? That's now how they work. The viewership is the more important number and probably rivals the Jordan seriws
