As the NBA Finals shifted to Miami, the series continued to post consistent ratings for ABC.

Game 3, which saw the San Antonio Spurs take a 2-1 lead over the Heat, drew 14.8 million total viewers, which is on par with the first two games. Tuesday was also up 5% compared to last year’s third game between the same two teams, despite the mostly one-sided affair.

Within the adults 18-49 demo, the game posted a 5.9 rating, which is also in line with the first two games. Through three games, the Finals are averaging 14.9 million total viewers and a 5.9 rating in the demo.

NBC’s America’s Got Talent drew a 2.6 rating among adults 18-49, according to Nielsen overnight numbers, down 10% from last week. Night Shift was even with last week at 1.5. NBC came in second, averaging a 2.2 rating and 7 share.

CBS came in third, airing reruns for a 0.8/2. Fox was fourth at 0.4/1. Riot and I Wanna Marry Harry were even with last week, each at 0.4.

The CW averaged a 0.3/1. Famous in 12 was up one tenth from last week’s premiere at 0.3.
