Wednesday TV Ratings 6/8/22: NBA Finals Slip, MasterChef and Let’s Make a Deal Primetime Tick Down (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: The third game of the 2022 'NBA Finals' (3.65, -0.06) declined by six-hundredths when compared to game two (3.71) but was a hair above the rating that game one posted (3.63). On the other hand, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night' (0.51, +0.16) and 'NBA Countdown' (0.84, +0.15) were both way up from their dismal Sunday ratings. On CBS, 'Let's Make a Deal Primetime' (0.34, -0.07) lost seven-hundredths from last week and was bested by a rerun of 'The Price Is Right At Night' (0.43) that aired after it. A 10PM 'SWAT' encore (0.26) was three-hundredths lower than the week prior. Over on Fox, 'MasterChef' (0.44, -0.02) and 'So You Think You Can Dance' (0.27, -0.07) lost some ground after last week's above-average outings. NBC had its usual rerun trio of 'Chicago Med' (0.29), 'Chicago Fire' (0.26), and 'Chicago PD' (0.30). Superhero drama 'The Flash' (0.12, +0.03) and marital-arts based 'Kung Fu' (0.07, +0.01) grew a touch on the CW. 

Finals Update: 'NBA Finals Game 3' (+1.0) and repeats of 'Chicago Fire' (+0.1) and 'SWAT' (+0.1) adjusted up. 'Jimmy Kimmel Live Game Night' (-0.7) and 'NBA Countdown' (-0.3) adjusted down.
