ABC’s Game 3 of the NBA Finals, a down-to-the-wire contest after the two previous blowouts, drew more total D-FW viewers than the third games of the 2015 and 2016 match ups between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Warriors’ late rally gave them a 118-113 win Wednesday and an almost assuredly insurmountable 3-0 lead over the defending champs. It averaged 450,808 viewers, up from 410,779 for last year’s Game 3 and 432,388 for 2015’s.

Among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, this year’s Game 3 had 202,047 viewers, improving on last year’s 196,893. But Game 3 of the 2015 Warriors-Cavs matchup far surpassed both of them with 252,304 viewers within the 18-to-49 motherlode.

Over on Fox Sports Southwest, the Texas Rangers’ latest loss, at home to the New York Mets, had 138,151 total viewers.

Here are Wednesday’s local news derby results.

CBS11 won a downsized three-way race at 10 p.m. in total viewers while NBC5 had the edge among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 and NBC5 tied for the top spots at 6 a.m. in both ratings measurements.

The Peacock swept the 5 p.m. competitions and also drew the most 25-to-54-year-olds at 6 p.m. TEGNA8 ran first with total viewers at 6 p.m.
