Game 1 of Cavs-Warriors NBA Finals averages 19.197 million viewers, up 8% from 2015


The Golden State Warriors win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in game 1 of the NBA Finals averaged 19.197 million viewers on ABC, up 8 percent versus the 17.768 million viewers game 1 with the same two teams a year ago (an overtime win for the Warriors). Considering last year’s game was an overtime win for the Warriors and this year the Warriors were cruising in the 4th quarter, ABC/ESPN has to be pretty pleased.

The game did a 13.1 overnight rating in the metered markets (largest 56 markets.)
