Thursday Final Nationals: Cavaliers-Warriors on ABC Registers Second-Most Viewed NBA Finals Game 1 in 19 Years

Game 1 of “2017 NBA Finals” made ABC the dominant ratings force on Thursday night. Although the opening game (18.7 million viewers) of the Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Golden State Warriors series — the third consecutive year featuring both teams in The Finals — was down 3 percent in total viewers from last year’s Game 1 (19.21 million viewers from June 2, 2016), it drew the second largest audience for an NBA Finals Game 1 since Chicago-Utah on NBC — Michael Jordan’s last Finals series in his playing career — from June 3, 1998 (26.7 million viewers).
