Tying up the series, the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors continue to give ABC huge year-over-year gains for the NBA Finals.

Thursday's Game Four, the highest in over a decade, jumped 31 percent from 2014 for an average 13.9 overnight rating. Early demo stats are also up, with the preliminary 6.3 rating among adults 18-49 rising 21 percent.

Fox had an even season finale of Bones (1.1 adults) and a steady episode of Wayward Pines (1.2 adults).

The night's other drama offerings were not a strong. Aquarius, still streaming its entire season, was a steady 0.8 rating with adults 18-49 on NBC — but Hannibal logged a series low, falling two-tenths of a point to a 0.5 adults rating.

On the CW, the return of Beauty and the Beast and the iHeart Radio Summer Pool Party each pulled a 0.3 in the key demo.
