Monday TV Ratings 6/12/23: NBA Finals Rise in Closing Game, American Ninja Warrior, Stars on Mars and Crime Scene Kitchen Tumble (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: The Denver Nuggets won their first NBA championship and defeated the Miami Heat head-on. As a result, the final game of the '2023 NBA Finals' (3.98, +0.75) was the highest-rated of the five in the Adults 18-49 demographic and the most-viewed overall. At 8, 'NBA Countdown' (1.01) was able to break the 1.0 threshold for the first time this month. Fox seemingly felt the brunt of ABC's NBA-fueled dominance and suffered greatly as a result. Both 'Stars on Mars' (0.18, -0.06) and 'Crime Scene Kitchen' (0.18, -0.06) lost big chunks of their week-ago premieres that were already on the softer side to begin with. NBC's 'American Ninja Warrior' (0.34, -0.09) also took a sizable hit and led into reruns of 'The Wall' (0.30) and 'Weakest Link' (0.26). CBS had repeats of 'The Neighborhood' (0.36), 'Bob Hearts Abishola' (0.25), 'NCIS' (0.21), and 'NCIS: Hawai'i' (0.21). CW dramas 'The Rising' (0.05, -0.01) and 'Barons' (0.02, -0.01) shed a hundredth apiece. 

Finals Update: 'NBA Finals Game 5' (+1.0) adjusted up, as did repeats of 'Weakest Link' (+0.1) and 'The Neighborhood' (+0.1). 'NBA Countdown' (-0.5) adjusted down.
