Ratings remained steady for the San Antonio Spurs’ latest demolition of the Miami Heat, with ABC’s Game 4 of the NBA Finals again blowing out all competing programming.

Running until 10:41 p.m., the Spurs’ 107-86 win averaged 461,585 D-FW viewers, with 247,509 of them within the advertiser-prized 18-to-49 demographic.

The total viewers Nielsen number tied Game 2 for the most to date. The 18-to-49 audience fell short of the 260,054 for Game 3.

CBS’ 8:30 p.m. rerun of The Millers made the best total viewers showing opposite the NBA with 149,127. Among 18-to-49-year-olds, NBC’s 9 p.m. hour of Last Comic Standing fared best with 65,134 viewers.

From 7 to 8 p.m., CBS’ repeat comedy combo of The Big Bang Theory and Mom led in total viewers while Big Bang and ABC’s onsite 7:30 p.m. pre-game show were tops with 18-to-49-year-olds.

Here are Thursday’s local news derby numbers.

NBC5 comfortably won the downsized three-way 10 p.m. race in both total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds, the main advertiser target audience for news programming.

Fox4 swept at 6 a.m. and WFAA8 did likewise at 6 p.m. NBC5 and CBS11 tied for the most total viewers at 5 p.m., but the Peacock was alone on top with 25-to-54-year-olds.
