On Thursday night, ABC had Game 1 of the NBA Finals and it delivered the best numbers since 2012 for a Game 1. The competition wasn't even close. On NBC, Dateline NBC was down a tenth in viewers and the demo. Aquarius dropped like a rock for its second week. It was down 1.8 million viewers and four tenths in the demo. Last week was serviceable but this week was terrible. I'm sure NBC will let it air all its episodes since its summer, but it has been rejected by audiences (or they watched it online since NBC made the whole season available, but I'm guessing that's not it). At 10pm, the season premiere of Hannibal was barely on the map with 2.6 million viewers and a 0.7 demo. This show only got a third season because its cheap for NBC and its critically acclaimed but these sorts of numbers may not even be good enough by those measures. Finally on FOX, Bones was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while Wayward Pines was up two tenths in viewers and down a tenth in the demo.
