Fox won the week ended June 25 with help from its summer reality offerings “So You Think You Can Dance” and “Hell’s Kitchen,” but the top-rated program for the week in the demo was ABC’s Tuesday telecast of Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

The battle between the Dallas Mavericks and the Miami Heat scored a 6.5 rating in adults 18 to 49, a number that includes live viewing plus same-day viewing via digital video recorders, according to Nielsen Media Research.

NBC was second in the demo for the week with the premiere of its reality series “America’s Got Talent” with a 4.6, followed by the Thursday edition of “So You think You Can Dance” (3.7).

The Wednesday edition of “Dance” (3.6), NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” on Tuesday (3.5) and Monday’s original episode of “Hell’s Kitchen” (3.5) rounded out the top six in the demo.

Fox was No. 1 for the week in adults 18 to 49, averaging a 2.5, followed by NBC (2.2), ABC and CBS (both 2.0), Univision (1.5), UPN and The WB (both 0.7) and Telemundo (0.4).
