ABC’s Game 3 of the NBA Finals Wednesday night ended with the Golden State Warriors taking a 3-0 lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers, just as they did last year.

Fueled by Kevin Durant’s MVP-worthy performance, the game ended precisely at 10:30 p.m. and averaged 427,326 D-FW viewers. That was down a little from last year’s third game, which had 450,808 viewers.

This year’s Game 3 showed an increase, however, among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, drawing 224,683 compared to last year’s 202,047.

CBS11’s 10 p.m. local newscast was the overall runner-up TV attraction opposite Warriors-Cavs with 185,175 total viewers. Among 18-to-49ers, NBC’s 9 p.m. episode of Reverie ran second best with 31,206 viewers.

On Tuesday, NBC’s 7 to 9 p.m. edition of America’s Got Talent comfortably led the prime-parade in both total viewers (284,884) and with 18-to-49-year-olds (74,894).

Here are the local news derby results for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Tuesday -- NBC5 swept the 10 p.m. competitions in both total viewers and among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 did likewise at both 6 a.m. and 5 p.m. TEGNA8 and CBS11 tied for the most total viewers at 6 p.m. while Fox4 won with 25-to-54-year-olds.

Wednesday -- CBS11 flexed by winning a downsized three-way 10 p.m. race in both ratings measurements.

Fox4 kept its latest lengthy unbeaten streak at 6 a.m. intact with another pair of firsts.

TEGNA8 drew the most total viewers at 6 p.m. while NBC5 won with 25-to-54-year-olds.

The 5 p.m. golds went to the Peacock in total viewers and Fox4 in the 25-to-54 realm.
