Tuesday TV Ratings 7/20/21: NBA Finals End With Top Rating of the Year, Mental Samurai Finale and Superman & Lois Slip, The Flash Ends Steady (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: With the Milwaukee Bucks winning the Championship, the 6th and last game of the 2021 NBA Finals scored a mammoth 2.8 A18-49 rating. This flew past the preliminary rating of the final 2020 game (2.1) and has a legitimate chance of adjusting up into the 4s. 'Kimmel Game Night' (1.4) and 'NBA Countdown' (1.8) were on the upswing but will likely adjust down heavily as they always do. Although ABC was the main attraction, NBC's 'America's Got Talent' (0.8) remained at a solid level, down just a tenth from last week. 'Capital One College Bowl' was frozen at its usual 0.4 rating at 10. On CBS, 'Love Island' (0.3) lost a few hundredths when compared to its previous Tuesday telecast. 'Island' aired between repeats of 'NCIS' (0.3) and 'FBI: Most Wanted' (0.2). Opposite the 'NBA Finals', 'LEGO Masters' (0.4) and 'Mental Samurai' (0.2) found themselves in series low territory on Fox. This is the first time 'Samurai' has fallen to a 0.2 rating since its May premiere. In CW news, 'The Flash' (0.2) was steady for its season finale while 'Superman & Lois' (0.1) shed a tenth. 

Finals Update: 'America's Got Talent' (+0.1), 'LEGO Masters' (+0.1), 'NBA Finals Game 6' (+1.5), 'Mental Samurai' (+0.1) and 'Superman & Lois' (+0.1) adjusted up. 'Jimmy Kimmel Live Game Night' (-0.9) and 'NBA Countdown' (-0.8) adjusted down.
