NBC earned the total-viewer, adults 18-49 and adults 25-54 crowns, thanks to the night’s top program on television, “American Ninja Warrior” (Women 18-34: 1.6/6; Men 18-34: 1.2/5; Women 18-49: 2.1/7; Men 18-49: 2.0/7) which reached a series-high in viewership.

Week two of ABC’s horror series “The Whispers” (Women 18-34: 0.9/3; Men 18-34: 0.5/2; Women 18-49: 1.3/4; Men 18-49: 0.6/2) took a hefty tumble, declining 25 percent in total viewership and 33 percent among adults 18-49 from its premiere episode.

There were more ratings gains for the NHL Stanley Cup Final. Game 3 between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Chicago Blackhawks aired on cable outlet NBCSN. Comparatively from the year-ago Game 3 (Los Angeles-N.Y. Rangers, also on NBCSN), it increased in viewership by 34 percent (3.896 million vs. 2.893 million) and by 17 percent among adults 18-49 (1.731 million vs. 1.478 million).

The game peaked in the final full quarter-hour at 5.262 million viewers from 10:45-11 p.m. ET.

NBCSN ranked as the top cable network across all key demographics last night in primetime (8-11 p.m. ET). Overall, NBCSN ranked third among adults 18-49 and adults 25-54, behind only NBC and ABC.

Both Chicago and Tampa Bay drew their highest local ratings ever for a game featuring their respective teams on NBCSN. Chicago delivered a 24.0 rating, up 49 percent versus the average rating in Chicago on NBCSN during the 2013 Stanley Cup Final (16.1). Tampa produced a 13.2 rating, surpassing its 11.9 rating from Game 7 of this year’s Eastern Conference Final against the Rangers.

NBCSN was the No. 1 network in both markets during the game.

These were the top 5 markets from last night’s Stanley Cup Final Game 3 on NBCSN: Chicago (24.0), Tampa-St. Pete (13.2), Buffalo (4.3), Boston (4.2) and Providence (3.8).

Game 3 was the most-streamed authenticated NHL game to-date on NBC Sports Live Extra, setting records in visits (219,000), uniques (189,000) and minutes watched (11.4 million). Digital engagement peaked in the 10 p.m. ET hour with 128,000 uniques.

The U.S. Women’s National Team’s first soccer game in the 2015 Women’s World Cup versus Australia scored impressive numbers for Fox Sports 1, increasing the average total audience of the United States’ first Women’s World Cup game (vs. North Korea) back on June 28, 2011 by 208 percent (3.311 million vs. 1.074 million) as well as by 186 percent among adults 18-49 (1.596 million vs. 559,000). The 2011 game had aired live from Germany on ESPN from 11:45 a.m. to 2:21 p.m. ET.

USA – Australia is the most-watched FIFA Women’s World Cup Group Stage match on record, beating the previous record of USA-Denmark (6/19/99), which drew 2.457 million (1991 data unavailable, according to Nielsen).

The audience is the largest ever for a soccer match in the history of Fox Sports 1 (Previous record: 806,000 on 4/15/15 for the friendly between the U.S. Men’s National Team and Mexico).

USA-Australia posted 118,000 unique streams on FOX Sports GO, making it the most-streamed authenticated event ever on the app, besting the previous mark set by 2014 World Series Game 7.

Washington, D.C. led all metered markets with a 4.5 rating, followed by Baltimore (3.8), St. Louis (3.7), Hartford (3.6), San Diego (3.2), Seattle (3.1), Orlando (2.9), Sacramento (2.9), Kansas City (2.9) and Los Angeles (2.8).

On the negative side, TNT experienced year-to-year declines for its season premieres of “Major Crimes” (-23 percent in total viewers/-44 percent among adults 18-49) and “Murder in the First” (-37 percent in total viewers/-47 percent among adults 18-49)
