Saturday TV Ratings 6/12/21: Lower NBA Playoffs Dominate, Olympic Trials and Superstar Racing Experience Weak (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: ABC cruised to the lead with the Jazz vs. Clippers 'NBA Playoffs' game (0.7) at 8:30 and an 8pm 'NBA Countdown' special (0.5). In a very distant second place, Fox got a modest result out of their 'MLB Regional Coverage' broadcast (0.3). NBC was right behind them with a low-rated showing of the 'Olympic Diving Trials' (0.2) and a marginally stronger 'America's Got Talent' encore (0.3). CBS settled for last place as neither 'Superstar Racing Experience' (0.2) nor a '48 Hours' rerun (0.2) could conjure up respectable ratings. 

Finals Update: NBA Playoffs: Jazz v. Clippers (+0.6) and MLB Regional Coverage (+0.1) adjusted up. NBA Countdown (-0.2) adjusted down.
