-Ratings Breakdown:
ABC led this second Thursday in June in the household overnights despite airing just repeats of two episodes of “Celebrity Family Feud” (3.9/ 7 from 8-10 p.m.) and “The $100,000 Pyramid” (3.1/ 6). Even so, NBC could still be poised for victory in adults 18-49 (and all the key demographics) as a result of Game 5 of the “Stanley Cup Finals” (Pittsburgh Penguins 6, Nashville Predators 0) at a 3.0/ 6 from 8-11 p.m. ET. Comparably, this was 14 percent below the 3.5/ 6 for the fifth game of the series on the year-ago evening.
Elsewhere, an encore telecast of CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory: topped the night at a 4.3/ 8 in the 8 p.m. half-hour. And that led into repeat telecasts of “Superior Donuts” (#3: 3.0/ 5), “Mom” (#3: 3.0/ 5), “Life in Pieces” (#3: 2.5/ 4) and a Thursday edition of drama “Bull” (#3: 2.6/ 5) from 8:30-11 p.m.
On Fox, recently introduced game shows “Beat Shazzam” (#4: 2.2/ 4) and “Love Connection” (#4: 1.8/ 3) slipped from their week-ago overnight averages by 12 percent and 14 percent, respectively. But the two hours were still, on average, 43 percent above failed year-ago reality competition “American Grit” (1.4/ 3 on 6/09/16). And The CW featured back-to-back repeat episodes of “Supernatural,” which averaged a 0.6/ 1 from 8-10 p.m.
