The Golden State Warriors closed out the game, undermanned Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday night, setting a D-FW ratings high in doing so.

Running until 10:58 p.m., Game 6 on ABC was the first to surpass the half-million viewers mark, averaging 523,050. The game also reached a high among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, with 277,534. Each of the six Warriors-Cavs face-offs drew more than half their audiences from this key demographic.

Over on Fox Sports Southwest, the Texas Rangers’ walk off win over the Dodgers had 146,454 total viewers and 44,153 in the 18-to-49 measurement.

NBC’s 7 to 9 p.m. edition of America’s Got Talent ranked second opposite the Finals in total viewers with 2330,142. Among 18-to-49-year-olds, AGT and Fox’s U.S.-Nigeria women’s World Cup soccer match tied for the runner-up spot with 78,845 viewers each. But soccer had the highest peak crowd, with 107,229 viewers in the 18-to-49 range during the 8:15 to 8:30 p.m. segment.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

NBC5 drew the most total viewers at 10 p.m. while Fox4 ran first with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming). Gannett8’s late nighter was pushed past 11 p.m. by the NBA Finals.

Fox4 ran the table at 6 a.m. and NBC5 did likewise at both 5 and 6 p.m.
