      • Viewers – 9.79M
      • Adults 18-49 – 2.2/7

    • 3.0/5 HH rating [#4]
    • 4.59M viewers [#4]

  • 8:00 p.m.: On the Lot (1.6/3 HH rating, 2.42M viewers, 1.0/3 A18-49) posted another series low with double-digit losses from the week prior as it makes its way towards its season/series finale. For whatever reason, this series just did not catch on. It’s quite surprising actually that FOX has decided to let it finish off its run, given its very low numbers.

      • Households – 1.8/3 to 1.6/3
      • Viewers – 2.77M to 2.42M

    • Last week’s numbers (House-REPEAT):
      • Households – 4.2/7
      • Viewers – 6.41M
      • Adults 18-49 – 2.3/6

ABC followed in fourth place for the evening with a 2.5/4 household rating, 3.61 million viewers and a 1.3/4 rating among adults 18-49.

  • Last Week:
    • 5.1/9 HH rating [#3]
    • 7.47M viewers [#3]
    • 3.0/9 A18-49 rating [#2]
  • 8:00 & 8:30 p.m.: A new episode of Fast Cars and Superstars (2.2/4 HH rating, 3.08M viewers, 1.0/3 A18-49 rating) was followed by a repeat of George Lopez (1.9/3 HH rating, 2.86M viewers, 1.1/4 A18-49 rating) which led to below average numbers for the hour. Fast Cars and Superstars was off a little from last week and the Lopez repeat paced below NBA Countdown.
    • Week-to-week numbers (Fast Cars and Superstars – 8:00 p.m.):
      • Households – 2.3/4 to 2.2/4
      • Viewers – 3.12M to 3.08M
      • Adults 18-49 – 1.1/4 to 1.0/3
    • Last week’s numbers (NBA Countdown – 8:30 p.m.):
      • Households – 2.7/5
      • Viewers – 3.77M
      • Adults 18-49 – 1.5/5
  • 9:00 & 9:30 p.m.: Back-to-back repeats of According to Jim (2.6/4 HH rating, 2.97M viewers, 1.5/4 A18-49 rating) bounced up a little, but were still fairly low.
  • 10:00 p.m.: A repeat of Boston Legal (2.9/5 HH rating, 4.15M viewers, 1.3/4 A18-49 rating) managed a slight uptick among households and viewers, but lost a little steam among adults 18-49. Sure the NBA Finals were low rated this season (check out this article for a complete analysis on the 2007 NBA Finals), but I’m sure ABC would have loved to see the series go to a full 7 games (Game 6 would have aired on this evening (6/19/2007), with Game 7 to air this coming Thursday (6/21/2007)).
    • Last week’s numbers (2007 NBA Finals Game 39:00-11:46 p.m.):
      • Households – 6.4/11
      • Viewers – 9.49M
      • Adults 18-49 -3.8/12
