The 2015 NBA Finals drew huge interest among television viewers.
This year’s six-game triumph by the Golden State Warriors over the Cleveland Cavaliers was the highest-rated championship round since ABC took over the broadcast in 2003.

Per the AP:
The Golden State Warriors’ six-game win over the Cleveland Cavaliers averaged an 11.6 rating. ESPN said Wednesday that the more than 19.9 million viewers were up 30 percent from last year’s five-game series between the Spurs and Heat.
Game 6 on Tuesday night drew a 13.4 rating, up 9 percent from the previous Game 6 two years ago between San Antonio and Miami.
